Phoronix Test Suite 3.2 will be officially released this month, but before that there's this final milestone release to benchmark through. Some of the notable changes in this new release are listed below (in no particular order).
- Phodevi supports proper version detection of the running Unity-2D and GNOME Shell desktops
- Intel GMCH thermal monitoring support as a Phodevi sensor module.
- Intel GPU load sensor monitoring via processing number of commands per second.
- Intel GPU power consumption monitoring on select chipsets.
- A variety of fixes for the Wine/CodeWeavers developers using the Phoronix Test Suite and OpenBenchmarking.org for per-commit performance tests of Wine.
- Support for un-ordered multi-way comparisons.
- Various bug-fixes.
I hope to issue the final release of Phoronix Test Suite 3.2-Grimstad within the next two weeks or so. Right now this current code (as also found in Git master on Phorogit) is in great shape. Before tagging the final release, there's just some improvements I'd like to make to a new auto-bisecting module, Phoromatic-over-OpenBenchmarking.org, and some other features in that area. If they don't land in time, 3.2 final should be close to what you're seeing today. Otherwise if there happens to be a lot of last minute churn, there's the possibility of doing a quick release candidate.
As always, feedback is welcome. Download Phoronix Test Suite 3.2 Milestone 4 at Phoronix-Test-Suite.com.
