Last summer we were working towards a new version of our in-house content management system and a brand new site layout developed by a German Phoronix reader. Due to mixed reactions that proposed layout wasn't launched, but work has been underway on a new version of Phoronix.com.
You may have noticed yesterday on Phoronix there were a lot of articles -- three multi-page featured articles and sixteen news stories. All of this content was authored by your's truly while in the next few days will be even more interesting and exciting Linux articles.
Arch Linux, Debian, LLVM/Clang, and Mesa users rejoice! There's new automated, daily benchmarks of these important open-source projects coming on a daily basis.
With Phoronix Test Suite 5.0-Plavsk you are able to remotely manage your Linux/BSD/OSX systems with ease and easily execute new benchmarks and analyze existing results. The HTML5 user-interface is coming along nicely and here is a preview of the latest pre-alpha state, which makes it easy from an Apple iPhone to easily facilitate new Linux benchmarking.
A lot of new and interesting content is inbound on Phoronix, besides all of the exciting work on Phoronix Test Suite 5.0 and other open-source Linux hardware activities.
The launch of the SteamOS 1.0 Beta and the continued Linux graphics improvements and new hardware were among the most exciting content on Phoronix for December 2013.
