1.0 (2010-02-22)

ROS 1.0 is here! In conjunction with this release, many of the libraries that have been built on top of ROS have been released as 1.0 as well. We hope that you will be able to use these libraries as a stable platform for a wide variety of robots and applications.


The focus of changes for this release was on bug fixes, cleanup, and resolving any remaining API issues.

There was one deprecated API removed in this final release, and will require migration for code not yet updated:

  • roscpp: Removed deprecated 3-argument versions of param::get() and NodeHandle::getParam()

rospy now also warns on illegal names. We have been introducing more name strictness in ROS. ROS auto-generates source code of messages and services. The name strictness ensures that source code can be validly generated for these types. There are also potential features in our roadmap that will require name strictness as well.

  • rospy:

    • ROSInterruptException is now also a subclass of KeyboardInterrupt

    • Bug fix to service calls: internal exceptions were not being recast as user-visible exceptions and shutdown exceptions were not be converted to ROSInterruptExceptions

    • warn on illegal ROS names for topics, services, nodes, and parameters.

    • clarified returns values from Service handler. Also, returning None is now always a failure.

    • Bug fixes to ServiceProxy state if service returns an error.

  • rosbag: Fixed bug that was causing sim_time to always be published

  • rosrecord:

    • Added reference-based record all to Recorder API
    • Fixed bug preventing Recording of user-instantiated message (Ticket: 2297)
    • Fixed bug involving re-writing over the same file (Ticket: 2298)
    • Correctly record/publish latching messages (Ticket: 1964)
  • roscreate-stack: automatically include ROS as a dependency due to untracked rosdep dependencies.

  • Substantial updates to documentation, including rosbuild, rostest, roslib, rosout, rosbash, rosbag, rospack, rosstack

  • roslib:

    • roslib.rospack: rospack/rosstack execution are now always ROS_ROOT-relative (bug fix)

    • bug fix to roslib.msg.resolve_type (Header, array consistency)

    • removed no-longer-used scripts and

  • Removed no-longer-used/experimental rossync, rosorg-svn, and rosinit

  • Moved non-core packages to ros_experimental: rosbrowse, rosmanual

  • roscpp

    • Fixed race condition when calling ServiceClient::call() on the same underlying ServiceClient from multiple threads concurrently (#2336, r7820)

    • Removed deprecated 3-argument versions of param::get() and NodeHandle::getParam() (r7824)

  • roslaunch:

    • append ROS_ROOT/bin to path if not present
    • no longer sets illegal parameter name for storing URIs on Parameter Server.
    • bug fix for error reporting when included file was missing <launch> tag

  • rostopic/rosservice: bug fix for when trying to pub/call with duration values.

  • roslib: roslib.stacks.get_stack_dir now raises InvalidROSStackException if stack does not exist to match behavior of get_pkg_dir

  • rosdep: removed old rosdep.yaml file in the rosdep package that is no longer used.

  • rosbag: rosbag fix: improved error handling

  • rxconsole: Fixed severity filtering to apply to already-received messages (#2361, r7979)

  • rxdeps:

    • Added unit tests. #1483
    • Changed cluster view to show other stacks in subgraphs locally.
    • arguments are parsed as stack names to view.
    • --target will scope the query to within the stack
    • --cluster requires either a --target option or arguments
    • inter-stack package dependencies are drawn as blue dashed edges
    • stack dependencies are drawn as red dashed edges
