This stack defines a ROS message for a universally unique identifier (UUID), as described in RFC 4122.

It also provides Python and C++ interfaces for managing UUIDs.

Release History

This stack was originally released for Fuerte (without the unique_id C++ API).

For Groovy, the C++ unique_id API was added.

For Hydro, the packages were converted to build using catkin. The unique_identifier stack became an empty meta-stack, depending on uuid_msgs and unique_id for backwards compatibility with rosbuild stacks. Catkin packages should depend on those packages directly, not depending on unique_identifier.

The interface is now stable.
