The third development milestone release of the open-source, cross-platform Phoronix Test Suite 5.6 benchmarking software is now available.

As with the earlier Phoronix Test Suite 5.6 development releases, the focus on development this quarterly cycle continues to be on further improving the open-source, built-in Phoromatic component that allows for test orchestration of multiple systems, managing results behind-the-firewall, and other enterprise-focused features.

In the past two weeks for Phoronix Test Suite 5.6 Milestone 3 is support for easily facilitating one-time benchmarks using the new "Benchmark" tab on the Phoromatic web interface that will issue single-run "benchmark tickets". There's also the ability to build test suites via the web interface, result RSS feed option for all accounts, new rootadmin configuration options, and a variety of other improvements.

All users currently relying upon the Phoromatic element of the Phoronix Test Suite or are evaluating it for potential enterprise use are highly encouraged to try out Phoronix Test Suite 5.6, which is nearing the end of its development cycle. The official release of Phoronix Test Suite 5.6.0 will be out in the next few weeks.
