Building off Phoronix Test Suite 6.6 that was officially released earlier this month, shipping today is the first and only planned point release to the 6.6-Loppa series.

Phoronix Test Suite 6.6.1 isn't a big maintenance release but just has a few non-critical changes:

- Various minor BSD support improvements.

- A phoronix-test-suite list-not-installed-tests has been added for convenience of seeing tests available that aren't currently installed on the system, rather than using just list-installed-tests or list-tests.

- A phoronix-test-suite php-conf sub-command that just provides some PHP-related diagnostics information about PHP extensions being used or not.

- Detection for the QupZilla browser when no other browser or alias is present on the system for being able to auto-launch the results viewer.

- Phodevi has been support for reporting overclocked memory frequencies when properly exposed via dmidecode.

- The PTS External Dependencies XML has been added with optional dependency support for Python SciPy and Python SciKit Learn packages, which is needed by the new scikit-learn test profile.

That's about it for this lone point release. Development is now focusing on Phoronix Test Suite 6.8-Tana as the next quarterly release due out before the end of 2016.
