MoveIt 2.2 - Support for ROS 2 Foxy, Galactic, Rolling

With MoveIt’s latest version bump to 2.2.0 we’ve finally added support for running MoveIt on Galactic and Rolling. Besides bug fixes, this release includes:

  • A full sync with MoveIt 1 (#505)
    • Use MoveItCpp as MoveGroup context, multi planning pipeline support (moveit#2127)
  • Enabled Bullet collision detection (#473)
  • Galactic and Rolling Support, enable CI (#494)

(see here for full CHANGELOG)

For now, all distros are supported from the main branch. In the future, main
will run Rolling, support for older distros - like Foxy now - will be continued in separate maintenance branches.

The release is currently only available as source install as we are still working on some issues with the build farm. For getting started, check out the install instructions and the tutorials.

Update: MoveIt 2.2.1 fixed the broken release. The binaries are available for Rolling using apt install ros-rolling-moveit, the corresponding Galactic and Foxy releases can be installed and tested using the ros2-testing repository (see instructions here).


Any ETA for the binary release to Foxy, Galactic and/or Rolling?

We’re almost ready to release our TIAGo robot public simulation, but we’d like to do a binary release and avoid forcing our users to build MoveIt from source.

@v-lopez MoveIt 2.2.1 is already synced for Rolling, you should be able to just use apt install ros-rolling-moveit. The same Galactic and Foxy releases are available with the ros2_testing repository and should be synced soon. Please let me know if you find any issues with those.
