  • Phoronix Test Suite 1.4.1 Released

    The reception of Phoronix Test Suite 1.4.0 has been great, but there are a few changes that warranted a quick release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.4.1. This first point release of Orkdal adds a few *BSD improvements, support for OpenBSD 4.4, reporting of the X.Org DDX driver version to the system information area, and a few other fixes.

    The Phoronix Test Suite 1.4 code in the Phorogit repository will soon be pushed from master into a pts-orkdal branch, so that the master branch can begin holding work that will go into the Q1'09 release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.6 "Tydal".
