Software

Phoronix Media has announced the release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.2 (codenamed "Malvik"), an update to its leading and award-winning benchmarking software, during the 2008 X Developers' Summit. This update incorporates support for new operating systems and features to better aid ISVs, IHVs, ODMs, and OEMs in profiling their hardware and software for optimal performance and compatibility. In total there are more than 250 official changes with many new test profiles and suites since the release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.0 in June of 2008.

The Phoronix Test Suite 1.2 update adds support for OpenSolaris and BSD operating systems, improved hardware and software detection, a new test installation framework, a module-based plug-in architecture, test analysis options, and other enhanced functionality. The Phoronix Test Suite ships with 75 test profiles and 38 test suites, with additional tests are being added frequently through its unique testing architecture. This architecture automates the processes from test installation to execution and result analysis in a completely repeatable and standardized protocol that allows for turnkey deployment capabilities.
