The first development snapshot of Phoronix Test Suite 9.2-Hurdal is now available ahead of the stable release later this quarter.

It's been just one month since the big Phoronix Test Suite 9.0 release with a new result viewer, graphing improvements, and other result viewing enhancements and lower-level improvements. With Phoronix Test Suite 9.2 as the Q4'2019 release will be more evolutionary improvements.

In the Phoronix Test Suite 9.2 Milestone 1 release are a number of external dependency updates and new possible dependencies in supporting newer test profiles. In particular, there are a number of Microsoft Windows and Apple macOS updates.

Also on the macOS launcher side is a launcher fix that is the principal motivator in getting this 9.2 M1 release out early. Due to a change in PTS 9.0.1, launching the Phoronix Test Suite on macOS could result in a possible crash and that has now been resolved.

Phoronix Test Suite 9.2 Milestone 1 is running great on Apple's macOS 10.15 Catalina and there will be some macOS vs. Windows vs. Linux benchmarks coming up soon on

Phoronix Test Suite 9.2 Milestone 1 is available for testing from GitHub. Contact us for your commercial support needs and custom engineering around this open-source, cross-platform benchmarking software.
