I am announcing the release of the robot_model.0.5.0. stack. The functionality of the kdl parser that was deprecated in the 0.3.0 release is removed in this release. To fix a memory leak in the urdf package, accessing the parent of a Link has changed, but this release maintains backwards compatibility.
- Removed deprecated functionality form Kdl parser:
- xml_parser is removed
- Deprecated in urdf:
- linkparent member variable in Link class is deprecated and replaced by the getParent() method. Once the linkparent member variable is completely removed (in the next release) the memory leak Ticket #2680 will be fixed.
