πŸ“’ https://aka.ms/ros/public - The new Chocolatey feed URL for ROS on Windows

Hi ROS on Windows Developers!

This is an announcement to inform you that now we have an new Chocolatey feed URL: https://aka.ms/ros/public.

If you are an new user, please follow ROS Wiki for the new installation: http://wiki.ros.org/Installation/Windows

If you are an existing user, please reconfigure your Chocolatey sources to get the future package releases.

Here are the simple 3 steps to switch to the new location:

  1. Open a command prompt as administrator.
  2. Run the commands as follow, which will replace your old source with the new one.
set ChocolateyInstall=c:\opt\chocolatey
choco source remove -n=ros-win
choco source add -n=ros-win -s="https://aka.ms/ros/public" --priority=1
  1. Check your Chocolatey sources. You should see something as below:
>choco source list
Chocolatey v0.10.15
chocolatey - https://chocolatey.org/api/v2/ | Priority 0|Bypass Proxy - False|Self-Service - False|Admin Only - False.
ros-win - https://aka.ms/ros/public | Priority 1|Bypass Proxy - False|Self-Service - False|Admin Only - False.

That’s it!

Happy coding ROS Developers! :muscle::muscle::muscle:

(If you run into any issues during the migration, please let us know at this ticket.)
