Last month the plans for Phoronix Test Suite 2.0 "Sandtorg"
were outlined with this next major release of our Linux (and Mac OS X,
OpenSolaris, and BSD too) benchmarking software set to introduce many
new features for the testing core, Phoromatic for providing remote
benchmarking support, a performance and benchmarking oriented Linux
distribution, and many other advancements. Phoronix Test Suite 2.0 will
not be released until late July or early August, but the first alpha
release has been made available this afternoon.
