Hey fellow ros_controllers,
I’m happy to announce the new releases of ros_control 0.19.3 and ros_controllers 0.18.0 in ROS Noetic!
- Major documentation update to help clarify the usage of
hardware_interfacecomponents, includes updates to docstrings as well as doxygen pages, see the diff here: https://github.com/ros-controls/ros_control/pull/479/files
- Our Python tools should all be happy with Python3, please let us know if you find issues
- JointGroupPositionController will now also support namespaced robot_descriptions
- effort_controllers/JointGroupPositionController now starts up with current positions set as target.
joint_trajectory_controllerwas checking against one-timestep-too-old state, which highlighted some shortcomings in the tolerance tests: both are fixed now.
