The second development release of Phoronix Test Suite 6.6-Loppa is now available for your cross-platform, open-source benchmarking needs.

Among the changes made over the past month for Phoronix Test Suite 6.6 Milestone 2 include improvements to the upload-test-suite and list-suites sub-commands, DragonFlyBSD external dependency tweaks, restructuring the check for determining if running on Ubuntu On Windows / the Linux Subsystem For Windows, styling / responsive design improvements to the web interface for Phoromatic, RAID detection improvements in Phodevi, and more.

Phoronix Test Suite 6.6 M2 also has initial support for coloring relevant text when running on a color-supported terminal. More in that area will also come in the next release for making it easier to diagnose large amounts of benchmark results output to the terminal.

Overall, Phoronix Test Suite 6.6 development continues going along at full-speed along with more improvements to Phoromatic and Phoronix Test Suite 6.6 will likely be released in September.
