  • Bug fixes to native aarch64 builds.
  • aarch64-native builds now run in CI and automatically generated on release.
  • Increased performance in the visualization of large, Lanelet2-based vector maps.

And a big thanks to all the contributors, reviewers, and maintainers - with a special shout-out to AutoCore for completing our in-vehicle pre-release testing!

NOTE: v1.14.0 will be the last Autoware.ai release to allow API-breaking changes as described in this ROS Discourse post. New features with non-API-breaking changes will be accepted until the release of v1.15.0 sometime before the end of 2020, at which time Autoware.ai will enter “maintenance mode” for two additional years, accepting only bug fixes.
