Fast DDS selected as the ROS 2 Humble Default Middleware

We are proud to announce the ROS 2 TSC members selected Fast DDS as the default middleware for the next release of ROS 2, codenamed Humble.

After a careful analysis of the technical evaluation reports provided by Open Robotics and the different DDS providers, the different alternatives were voted, and Fast DDS in its Synchronous configuration was selected.

I want to thank Open Robotics, the ROS 2 TSC members, and the ROS community this new opportunity be part of this great project. Also, I wish to make an special mention to all the anonymous contributors helping us to improve Fast DDS.
