@ggrigor Great work :exclamation:

do you have any future plan or milestone with next ROS Release Humble in public?

thanks,

Yes, and thank you.

We are working with Open Robotics on improvements for hardware acceleration, which will be part of the ROS2 Humble release in May 2022. Our release is targeted for early June after Humble ships and will include hardware acceleration pipelines between ROS nodes.
