| No Comments | No TrackBacks

electric_rc1_200w.pngROS Electric Release Candidate 1 is now available. Thanks to all of you who have participated in the ROS Electic Beta process. We have been able to fix numerous issues as well as bring many more stacks into compatibility with Electric.

During this release candidate, we ask users of platforms like OS X, Arch, Fedora, Gentoo, OpenSUSE, Debian, and Slackware to please verify the ROS Electric installation instructions for those platforms.

A super mega thanks for this RC1 goes to:

  • Michael Karg, Severin Lemaignan, and Lorenz M√ɬ∂senlechner: Python 3 support for major ROS libraries in order to support MORSE
  • William Woodall: OS X integration efforts
  • Thibault Kruset: widespread efforts with rosinstall, roslisp, and elsewhere
  • Chris Mansley: rosinstall patches.

This RC1 is limited to robot-generic software. Users of specific robot platforms like the PR2 should wait for system integrators to give the go-ahead on those platforms.

For a list of updates that ROS Electric provides, please see the ROS Electric Beta announcement.
