I am pleased to announce the release of PlotJuggler 1.0
PlotJuggler is a graphic interface that allows users to visualize data (and in particular time series) from either a rosbag or a streaming of messages from ros topics (including rosout).
It can be considered a unified replacement for rqt_plot, rqt_rosbag and rqt_console.
You can watch a short presentation video here:
The 1.0 release is a big milestone for the project. This is what you should expect from this first official release:
Feature-complete: there are a couple of new cool series on Netflix, so don’t expect me to do any further development in the near future. I will still fix bugs, though.
Reliability: the app apparently crushes less often than usual and I believe that was a compelling reason to tag the 1.0 release.
Stable API (plugins): … until I decide unilaterally to change it, of course.
In short, if you think that tagging the current release as “1.0” is just a marketing strategy to make you think that this software worth your trust, you are absolutely right.
I would like to thank all the user that relentlessly asked me to fix bugs and add features (without contributing with any PR, of course); with their Github issues they helped make PlotJuggler great again!
P.S.= Seriously now. I appreciated a lot the people which sent suggestions, issue reports, feedback and PR.
If you find PlotJuggler useful, or think that it can be improved, please consider dropping me a line.
