This page lists changes that were made in the 1.1.x series of visualization (C Turtle Alpha).

1.1.3 (2010-7-3)

  • rviz

    • Now reports the exception message and exits cleanly if an exception is thrown during startup (r30816)
    • Reduced the tf cache length to 60 seconds to significantly reduce memory usage (r30749)
    • PointCloud/PointCloud2/LaserScan displays: fixed selection properties to show the correct values (<<Ticket(ros-pkg,4168)>>, r30865)

    • COLLADA loading now properly transforms normals and does not use assimp's automatic conversion to Y-up (<<Ticket(ros-pkg,4274)>>, r31054)

    • URDF loading of spheres now uses the radius correctly (was using the radius as a diameter) (<<Ticket(ros-pkg,4273)>>, r31190)

    • Markers with a scale component of 0 (if that's not expected) now produce a warning (<<Ticket(ros-pkg,4292)>>, r31194)

1.1.2 (2010-7-1)

  • rviz

    • Receiving images, both in image_view and rviz no longer takes a larger amount of CPU than necessary (<<Ticket(ros-pkg,4173)>>, r30277)

    • MESH_RESOURCE marker will no longer crash on deletion when it had never received a valid (non-empty, loadable) resource (<<Ticket(ros-pkg,4180)>>, r30581)

    • MESH_RESOURCE markers now detect when the resource has changed, and update accordingly (r30585)

    • A MESH_RESOURCE marker can now use the materials defined in the mesh's file if you set mesh_use_embedded_materials to true. This works with mesh formats that include the material definitions inline, such as COLLADA (#4187, r30586)

  • rxbag_plugins

    • warn on multiple background tasks (e.g. image or CSV exporting)
    • ImageView: R and B channels were being swapped on CompressedImage message export

    • PlotView bug fixes

      • reopening configure frame no longer clears plot
      • disabled drag & drop on configure frame due to wxPython bug

      • fixed CSV export when striding
      • chart fixes (e.g. axis label widths; no data or zero range display)

1.1.1 (2010-06-04)

  • rviz

    • Fixed support for the mesh scale attribute in a URDF (r29419)

    • Point Clouds/Laser Scans
      • New PointCloud2 display (<<Ticket(ros-pkg,4087)>>)

      • Rewrote color/position transforming so that it is pluggable by pcl

      • Loading of fields related to transforming intensity into color is not backwards compatible, please update your config files.
    • Support for loading COLLADA meshes and materials (<<Ticket(ros-pkg,3930)>>, r29747)

      • In the RobotModel display COLLADA materials override the urdf material specification

    • Support for new TRIANGLE_LIST visualization Marker type (r29750)

1.1 (2010-04-12)

  • rviz

    • Added dialog which is shown when it cannot contact the master. No longer fully initializes and then closes immediately (r28449)
    • TF Display: added "Frame Timeout" option, which will fade out frames when we haven't received data about them in a certain amount of time. Defaults to 15 seconds. (#3825, r28455)

    • Ogre.log file is now suppressed by default, with a command line option (-l) to turn it on (r28432)

    • Fixed relative paths passed to -d command-line options (r28429)

    • Marker Display
      • New MESH_RESOURCE marker type that can load meshes from disk/web

      • New TEXT_VIEW_FACING marker type for displaying text

      • New frame locked option for markers, which automatically retransforms them into a frame every update cycle
      • Support for per-point color for POINT, CUBE_LIST, LINE_LIST and LINE_STRIP markers. Does not yet support per-point alpha though the capability exists in the message.

      • POINT, CUBE_LIST, LINE_LIST and LINE_STRIP markers no longer throw away messages with empty points members (#3839, r28128)

    • Camera Display now uses image_transport, with a dropdown to choose from the available transport types. It does not yet have any way of knowing which transport plugins are loaded however (<<Ticket(ros-pkg,3974)>>)

    • Moved rendering into an idle callback, which should be a better way of keeping the UI responsive
