"Phoronix Media has released version 2.0 (codenamed
"Sandtorg") of the Phoronix Test Suite, which encompasses hundreds
of updates to its flagship testing and performance profiling
software. Phoronix Media has also released PTS Desktop Live 2009.3
(codenamed "Gernlinden"), which is the first Linux-based desktop
operating system designed exclusively for carrying out automated
tests using the Phoronix Test Suite from a live environment.
Phoromatic, a web-based remote test management system, has also
entered closed beta testing.
"Phoronix Test Suite 2.0, which is supported on Linux,
OpenSolaris, BSD, and Mac OS X operating systems, ships with more
than 100 distinct test profiles and 47 test suites, while new test
profiles and suites can continue to be added through its unique
XML-based testing architecture. The release of Phoronix Test Suite
2.0 also delivers a multitude of new testing options, an improved
graphical user interface, reference system comparison support, and
many internal improvements."
