New release of the ros_buildfarm package (version 1.3.0)

I have just released version 1.3.0 of the ros_buildfarm package. I want to highlight a few items from the changelog:

  • add support for new platforms targeted by ROS Lunar (Ubuntu Yakkety and Zesty, Debian Stretch)
  • provide new status page showing packages ready to be released / blocking other releases (e.g. for Lunar)
  • improve output of devel / prerelease jobs to fold sections when being used on Travis
  • improve prerelease jobs to support external repos without requiring them to be listed in rosdistro

The Debian packaging has changed (similar to other packages recently, e.g. catkin_pkg, rospkg, rosdistro). The Debian packages python(3)-ros-buildfarm only contain the command line scripts (therefore only one of them can be installed). They depend on the python(3)-ros-buildfarm-modules package which contains the actual Python modules (thos two are side-by-side installable). This makes it easier to reuse Python code from both Python 2 and Python 3 at the same time. From the user point of view this change is transparent - the -modules package is an implementation detail. For the package provide through pip nothing has changed. For more information on this please see PR #402.

Happy Building!
