As outlined in last night's Phoronix Test Suite 5.4-Lipki M5 release, the official release of this huge update to our open-source (GPL) benchmarking software is due out in the next few weeks. The major focus of the 5.4 cycle has been on finishing the overhaul of the next-generation version of Phoromatic that's open-source and built into the Phoronix Test Suite for serving centralized test management and test orchestration needs for clusters of systems running the Phoronix Test Suite for routine (or in some cases, continuous) benchmarking.
Just last week Phoronix Test Suite 5.4 Milestone 4 was released but already there's enough changes to warrant the release of PTS 5.4 Milestone 5, with the end of the Lipki development cycle being in sight.

I recently read Michael Larabel's article concerning the Chernobyl disaster, as well as the comments that followed it, and, after writing the text I felt I wanted to write, I would like to share it - and to know your thoughts.

I would like to bring attention to it again.
