With every ROS 2 release, eProsima works continuously on new features, innovative tools and the standard’s APIs to make Fast RTPS, what it is today, the most complete open source DDS middleware for ROS 2.
Especially the release of Foxy gives eProsima a reason to celebrate. We are proud to announce that the Fast RTPS implementation is finally compliant with the OMG DDS 1.4 and RTPS 2.2 standards.
As a symbol for this milestone we change the name of Fast RTPS to Fast DDS 2.0!
eProsima Fast DDS is a high performance publish subscribe framework to share data in distributed systems using a decoupled model based on Publishers, Subscribers and Data Topics.
Fast RTPS implemented already many DDS specifications like DDS Security, DDS-XTypes, RPC over DDS, DDS TCP PSM and Modern C DDS Mapping but some core DDS APIs were not compliant with the standard until now.
Last but not least eProsima also updated Micro XRCE-DDS 1.3, our solution for eXtreme Resource Constrained Environments, such as Microcontrollers, and the base middleware of the micro-ROS project, the ROS 2 extension for Microcontrollers. Within the next few days, we will publish a new release of micro-ROS supporting Foxy.
