[Blog] ROS 2 Foxy Fitzroy: Setting a new standard for production robot development

Hi all, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but I’ve been lurking and reading posts when I can. I’m planning on being more active in the community again.

I wanted to share a blog that @Aaron_Blasdel, @Cam_Buscaron and I wrote as an overview of some of the great features and improvements in the Foxy release, and why we believe this release is ready for use in production.
