Phoronix releases version 2.2 of Phoronix Test Suite!

Phoronix recently announced on their website that version 2.2 "Bardu" of the Phoronix Test Suite has been released. The official release contains quite a few fixes and new features, as the changelog shows. The PTS Live DVD release based on Phoronix Test Suite version 2.2 is expected in December of this year.
The benchmarking suite is currently available for the Linux, OpenSolaris, BSD, and Mac OS X platforms.
The downloads page is located here.
Happy Benchmarking, everyone!

EDIT:: I've been having issues running the GUI for the Phoronix Test Suite. The error message that I get in the command line after running "phoronix-test-suite gui" is :
Class 'GtkWindow' not found in /usr/share/phoronix-test-suite/pts-core/objects/gtk/pts_gtk_window.php on line 23
Apparently it's an issue with the lack of a compiled PHP GTK package ( or at least the forum posts say so.)
Command line running of PTS 2.2 should still work just fine.
