PHORONIX --
Now that the new Phoronix site is rolled out and tweaking on that almost complete, one of my next work items on the list are some improvements to OpenBenchmarking.org.

I've long been meaning to push out a new version of OpenBenchmarking.org, albeit there's a very lengthy TODO list of all sort of Phoronix Media work items. However, before the end of the summer and Phoronix Test Suite 6.0 I do plan to have out some major improvements.

Among the items on the table for OpenBenchmarking.org are restoring the search-related features now that the site is on some newer hardware, make various other database/storage-related improvements now that OpenBenchmarking.org is in the tens of gigabytes of benchmarking data to handle, work on some UI-related improvements and a mobile friendly version of the site, etc. Once the back-end improvements are done with speeding up the handling of the massive data archive of new benchmark results constantly being added, I do have some features in mind for making it easier to see how the various individual result files compare to the rest of the results from the community, etc.

In the next few days I hope to have out some minor improvements, fixing for registration, and some speed enhancements while the other changes will still likely be a few weeks out. I'm just posting about this now in case any Phoronix readers have any new feature requests, design ideas, or other feedback in making OpenBenchmarking.org useful for those running our open-source benchmarks via the Phoronix Test Suite or if you simply visit the site for viewing benchmarks done by us, individuals, and other parties.
