API change

declare plugins using "package_name/class_name" instead of just "class_name"

This requires:

  • switch to PLUGINLIB_DECLARE_CLASS(pkg, class_name, class_type, base_class_type)
    • From PLUGINLIB_REGISTER_CLASS(class_name, class_type, base_class_type)
  • xml plugin definitions use pkg/class_name
  • dynamically loaded using "package_name/class_name" as class type

backwards compatability

  • old macro is still there
  • if you use it w/o the / syntax it will find the old style methods
