Please see rqt_common_plugins for more information on rxtool replacements.
For documentation on the libraries that rxtools provides, please see the Code API.
rxconsole and rxplot are stable tools. For future development, the hope is to add other forms of plotting to rxplot, such as plotting distributions. rxplot may also get a plugin API that would enable it to plot common message types with default settings.
In future versions of ROS, the rxplot command-line format may be changed to reflect updates in ROS name syntax.
