A new major release of the Orocos Toolchain is available, the 4th since our 2.0 cycle started. This release confirms the trend of the previous releases: getting bugs out of the core libraries and extending/improving the tooling.
Notable improvements can be found in the rtt-lua scripting bindings, which is nearing its 1.0 release and widely used by now; a new appender for logging to Apache ChainSaw has been added to OCL's logging service; orogen/typegen has evolved further, including a generic POSIX mqueue transport and the RTT data flow implementation has been optimized to only have minimal copies of data. Various anoying bugs were fixed in RTT XML serialization, Taskbrowser and scripting.
There is a regression for Mac OS-X users regarding the type system (types in scripts don't work). We encourage users to test this version (or use git-bisect) and to submit bug reports such that we can nail down where this regression comes from.
