Hi,

Last night, I've released a new version of the LiveCD. The
changes:

    * [CD] Removed both switch tests (suggested by Phillipe Gerum).
    * [CD] Fixed the UP test runtime which was wrongly submitted as LXRT
      test runtime.
    * [CD] Removed "find" for creating load as dd was already generating IO.
    * [CD] Removed "hackbench" because the starting of the test got
      delayed significantly, which
      might cause a user to think it crashed.
    * [CD] Remove previous still running loadgenerators before starting
      new ones (to giveall tests similar load).
    * [CD] Remove background loadgenerating tasks if they're not needed
      anymore.
    * [CD] Fixed the LXRT latency test output which lagged because of
      buffering (fix suggested by Gilles Chanteperdrix).
    * [DB,CD] Added (optional) submitter identifier submission.
    * [DB,CD] Added UP and LXRT preempt testresults submission.
    * [DB] Cleaner more consistent output during testruns.
    * [CD] When using the online submission, you could not know if the
      addition to the database was succesfull. Now it reports if the
      database submission was succesfull or not.
    * [CD] The load was partially created by reading from the CD-ROM,
      which caused errors because the CD-ROM is only 16MB. Now it
      searches for the first HD -or if no HD, CD-ROM- to use for
      generating load (readonly access).
    * [CD] Progress bars for operations that take a while to complete.
    * [CD] Check and warn user if floppy disk is not available.
    * [DB] Obfuscate e-mail-addresses on display.
    * [CD] Reduced CD-image size with 1MB.
    * [CD] You can now halt and reboot.
    * [CD] After running the tests you can now get multiple shells.



Any feedback appreciated!

With friendly regards,
Takis
