The latest development release of Phoronix Test Suite 6.0 (codenamed Hammerfest) is now available for open-source, cross-platform benchmarking.

Most visible to Phoronix Test Suite 6.0 Milestone 5 is a brand-new results viewer for when locally viewing your benchmark results outside of Phoromatic and The result viewer was rewritten with an updated theme that now jives with the new site design. Additionally, the new local results viewer is written in HTML+JS for loading the XML results rather than using XSL. The XSL-based results viewer has been dropped due to poor cross-browser support (namely Chrome) for dealing with local XML+XSL data, etc.

The in-tree HTML documentation also now has an updated theme too for matching the design. Phoronix Test Suite 6.0 Milestone 5 also has fixes for phoronix-test-suite finish-run, phoronix-test-suite result-file-to-csv, and other fixes and adjustments. The ongoing new Phoromatic Server work also has seen more tweaks and refinements in today's development release.

Originally Phoronix Test Suite 6.0 was going to be released alongside a brand new release, but as the graphics designer isn't yet done with that work, I'm putting off that milestone until Phoronix Test Suite 6.2 in early 2016. Besides a new site layout, the new will restore functionality and have a wealth of other new functionality. With that said, I'm now planning to release Phoronix Test Suite 6.0-Hammerfest in mid-November. Prior to that may be one more development milestone release as there's still some system monitoring changes likely to make this next release.
