"This also raises the count for the number of compatible tests in our GPLv3-licensed automated testing software that is compatible with Mac OS X, OpenSolaris, and *BSD operating systems.

"Among the recently added test profiles are dbench (another disk test), gmpbench (a GMP test profile), pgbench (PostgreSQL testing), tiobench (Threaded I/O Tester), Crafty (an advanced chess engine), opstone-vsp (CPU Vector Scalar Product), opstone-svsp (CPU Sparse-Vector Scalar Product), opstone-svd (CPU Singular Value Decomposition), cachebench (a memory cache test), and apache (Apache benchmarking). This is also in addition to a number of new test suites. All of this latest work can be found in the latest Git code for Phoronix Test Suite 2.0. Another milestone was also broken and that is the Phoronix Test Suite now contains more than 40,000 lines of code."
