Phoronix: Phoronix Test Suite 1.4 "Orkdal" Released
Phoronix Media has announced the immediate availability of its Q4'08 update to the Phoronix Test Suite, its extensible open-source platform for conducting automated testing and benchmarking by ISVs, IHVs, ODMs, OEMs, and end-users. Phoronix Test Suite 1.4 (codenamed "Orkdal") adds support for Apple's Mac OS X operating system, new test profiles, support for Cascading Test Profiles, enhanced software/hardware detection, WINE-based tests, and run-time capabilities for Self-Contained Test Profiles. This quarterly update to the Phoronix Test Suite has more than 200 changes since the Phoronix Test Suite 1.2 "Malvik" release in September.
Being from Trondheim in Norway I just wonder, what is the connection between the naming of test suites and counties in Norway?
Norway's a fine country to visit and I've been to Trondheim and elsewhere previously. Just since they have unique names and I know of no other software project using Norwegian words for codenames, that is primarily why you'll see them being used with the Phoronix Test Suite.
