1.2.4 (2010-09-15)

  • gazebo

    • create and update default build from tarball

1.2.3 (2010-08-20)

  • gazebo

    • add option to spawn_model script to unpause on spawn
    • Fix GetModelState to actually use relative_entity_name for pose/twist returns

    • pass along genTexCoord gazebo tag from urdf to gazebo xml
    • push local patches into gazebo trunk. fixed contact visuals.
  • gazebo_worlds

    • switching default launch scripts from gazebo_model to spawn_model
    • adding the drill object
  • gazebo_tools

    • pass along genTexCoord gazebo tag from urdf to gazebo xml

1.2.2 (2010-07-31)

  • gazebo

    • fix fltk compile on gentoo <<Ticket(ros-pkg 4310)>>

1.2.1 (2010-07-24)

1.2.0 (2010-07-22)

Major updates since 1.0 release:

  • gazebo

    • gazebo continues even if loading controller plugins fails
    • get ready to switch xml tags
      • Controller: alwaysOn->alwaysActive

      • Physics ODE: deprecate quickStep, quickStepIters, quickStepW

    • added camera synchronizer node, allowing turning on/off texture projector.
    • ignore .gazeborc if paths are set already. This fixes problem with ms_singleton in <<Ticket(ros-pkg 4090)>>

    • works with ode double precision
    • iface no longer mandatory for controller plugins
    • physics hooks for Get/Set physics properties
    • new ROS API

    • fixed semaphore bug <<Ticket(ros-pkg 3982)>> by making semaphores all rw-able.

    • new gazebomodel commandline interface
    • Fixed deletion of complex objects in gazebo #3976
    • <<Ticket(ros-pkg,4078)>> switch dInfinity to numeric_limits<double>::max to avoid spams by boost::lexical_cast

    • assimp based mesh loader (with Collada support).
    • Supports ODE and bullet physics engines.
    • Supports GPU shaders: per-vertex lighting, per-pixel lighting, normal and tangent maps.
  • gazebo_worlds

    • added yet another simple office world file
    • turn off shadow in default

    • added an elevator world
    • removing gazebo_ros_time plugin now that gazebo binary wraps ros and publishes clock,
    • added a shopping cart
  • gazebo_plugins

    • added new texture projector
    • added imu calibration service call, does nothing and returns true. (in support of simulating full robot startup calibration).
  • gazebo_tools

    • pass through joint damping to Gazebo XML
