See also navigation/ChangeList.

Version policy

Each navigation stack version is numbered X.Y.Z:

  • X: major
  • Y: minor
  • Z: patch (also called micro)


  • major release: changes that break features/APIs and/or involve significant rewrites (can be backward-incompatible)
  • minor release: changes that fix bugs and/or add features/APIs (backward-compatible, can be forward-incompatible)
  • patch release: strictly bug fixes; no changes or additions to features or APIs (backward- and forward-compatible)

Future work

  • A roswtf plugin for navigation.
  • Re-write of navigation using nodelets rather than the current plugin structure.
  • Re-write the robot pose ekf with a nodelet plugin mechanism.
