ROS 2 alpha2 (Baling Wire)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
We're happy to announce the release of ROS 2 alpha2, code-named Baling Wire!

Installation instructions and tutorials designed to exercise new
features in ROS 2 are in the wiki:

To get an idea of what's in (and what's not in) this release, be sure
to read the overview page:

From that page, an important caveat that will persist for the next few
alpha releases:
As the "alpha" qualifier suggests, this release of ROS 2 is far from
complete. You should not expect to switch from ROS 1 to ROS 2, nor
should you expect to build a new robot control system with ROS 2.
Rather, you should expect to try out some demos, explore the code, and
perhaps write your own demos.

We're now on a ~6-week cadence for alpha releases.  We're continually
updating the roadmap to forecast what will be included in each alpha

As always, we invite you to try out the new software, give feedback,
report bugs, and suggest features (and contribute code!):
