Linux Game Servers From Phoronix

If you're interested in seeing Phoronix offer Linux gaming servers head on over to this Phoronix thread to let us know what games you would like to see offered. From other readers requesting Phoronix offer such Linux gaming servers specifically for the lack of servers on the Internet with some open-source games, we are currently evaluating this possibility.

PHXCMS-6 Updates

This week we've made a few minor upgrades to PHXCMS-6, our in-house content management system that powers Phoronix. A lot of maintenance changes / minor fixes and improvements make up this most recent upgrade. The drop-down menu for jumping between multi-page articles (example) has been moved back down to the bottom of the page, summaries returning back to the pages of Linux distribution screenshots, and some minor navigation improvements. When visiting the Phoronix homepage now, underneath "Reviews From Around The Web" on the left hand side of the Phoronix navigation is now "This Day in Phoronix History" -- this will simply list a couple reviews and news postings that were published on Phoronix on this day in past years (something interesting nevertheless). If you have any feedback on these latest changes or other site features you would like to see, contact us or post a message on the forums.

This is a reminder that if you haven't yet subscribed to our RSS feeds, it is a perfect time to do so. Next week we will be covering Sun Microsystems' JavaOne 2007 conference live from San Francisco, California. There should be quite a bit of news coming out on Java (well, that's a given), Solaris, open-source software, and technology in general. We will be covering the conference all week and will be pushing out news as it happens in our Phoronix news feed and then nightly reports back in our articles feed. You can subscribe to both of our RSS feeds on the Phoronix about page. You can also find and share more information in our Linux and Solaris forums.

Phoronix Search Functionality Update

Outside of the minor CSS fixes and other tweaking we have been doing to Phoronix since implementing the PHXCMS-6 content management system, the integrated search engine has now experienced a makeover. Most notably, when performing a search it will now list relevant GNU/Linux and Solaris news entries in addition to the related articles/reviews. The formatting of the search results has also changed so that it will be listing each result as a link to the actual information along with displaying the date the information originally appeared on Phoronix and its category. Results for the articles and news are limited to the 100 most recent.

The Return of Redblog

After a short break, the Phoronix Redblog is back and ready to roll! This comeback is due to the amount of messages received asking for the blog's return and the overwhelming help users continue to request. It will no longer be updated on a daily basis, but new blog entries will come along when there is information worth passing along. As this blog continues, I will continue to focus on areas for ATI's fglrx department to improve upon, successes/failures I encounter with my day-to-day usage of ATI's Linux drivers, etc...

Phoronix Site Upgrade

The first set of updates to the Phoronix Content Management System v5 (PHXCMS5) have been merged with our live server. Most of these improvements are under the hood, but there are a few visible changes. A majority of the CSS has been re-written for improved browser compatibility, load-time/efficiency, and the basis for some future expansions. The site should appear correctly in all major browsers. If you notice any browsing problems please report them.

Site Suggestions

We are in the process of polling our readers to see what areas they would like improved when it comes to the site layout and features.
