I am announcing the release of the robot_model.0.4.0. stack. Since the last release, we've worked hard to review the API and documentation of all packages in this stack. This resulted in a lot of extra documentation and tutorials, and some minor API changes in the kdl parser.
- API and Doc review: all packages in the robot_model stack have been through our API and Documentation review process.
- Kdl parser
- Deprecated xml_parser
- Deprecated treeFromRobotModel method (replaced by treeFromUrdf). The deprecated functionality will be removed in the next release cycle.
- Updated XML format documentation
- New beginner tutorials to create and parse urdf files
- Add command line tool to verify urdf file
