Phoronix Test Suite 5.8.1 was released today as the first point release to Phoronix Test Suite 5.8 that was officially released earlier this month.

The Phoronix Test Suite 5.8.1 release just rolls out some various bug-fixes and minor improvements over v5.8.0. Phoronix Test Suite 5.8.1 has a number of Phoromatic updates if relying upon that functionality for automated benchmark orchestration against a cluster/farm of Linux/BSD/Solaris systems. These improvements have also helped the setup.

Overall it should be another good update and stable users are encouraged to upgrade via or Phoronix-Test-Suite on GitHub. Commercial support and other services are available. There might be one more point release (Phoronix Test Suite 5.8.2) before focusing all development efforts on Phoronix Test Suite 6.0 for release later this year.
