Support for ROS Kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04?



  • Hi,

    It looks like as of ANVEL 3.5 there is built in support for ROS Indigo on Ubuntu 14.04, which is great.

    We currently have a system that is built on ROS Kinetic and uses gazebo for simulation. For a number of reasons we would like to move to ANVEL, but I am hesitant to downgrade from Kinetic/16.04 to Indigo/14.04. Are there any plans for supporting ROS Kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04? And do you have a roadmap somewhere with expected features for future releases?

    Thanks!
    Henry



  • @hroth,

    Great question. We would love to support ROS Kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04, and have tentative plans to do so for the ANVEL 4.0 release in May 2019.

    We don't currently publish the ANVEL roadmap, since it is predominately dictated by paying customers and may fluctuate. If you and/or your team needs ROS Kinetic support before May, I can bring up the issue with the business development team and get back to you with commercial pricing and contracting options. Just let us know!

    Regards,
