Orocos Toolchain v2.3.0 released !

All the buzz was right, a new release was anxiously waiting to become official, only being released when all tests pass on all platforms. We got it rock-solid on various Linux flavors, Windows (Visual Studio) and Mac OS-X. Focusing on usability instead of features, it accumulates tons of suggestions and improvements offered by the community, translated in 262 patches alone for RTT between 2.2.0 and 2.3.0.

Ros parameter arrays


I've got everything up and running now. Soem is working completely and I can start everything with a single launch file. So thanks for that :)

So it was time to move all the properties to the parameter server. This way you have everything in one place.

The documentation on ros.org was pretty good however I still have problems with loading arrays.

I did a BaseController.rosparam.storeProperties command in the deployer. Click below to read the rest of this post.

UseOROCOS-RTT, orocos-rtt-config.cmake - bugs

I think that I have found two bugs in cmake files. First bug is in UseOROCOS-RTT.cmake. There is used SHARED keyword for add_executable command. I'm sure that is a bug:). Click below to read the rest of this post.

Marshalling: linking problem


I used successfully marshalling with orocos_toolchain_ros 0.1.8 and cturtle with my code in a ROS-package (without any linking commands in the CMakeLists file). Click below to read the rest of this post.
