This month marks the end of the support window for ROS 2 Dashing Diademata. Over the past week I’ve been reviewing the patch release project board and plucking a final few backports to make while also removing items that would cause unnecessary churn during the final release cycle.
I’m making the final releases into Dashing from that project board this week and next week we’ll hold all Dashing releases unless they resolve a documented issue or build farm regression.
As with other final LTS releases, if you’re still using ROS 2 Dashing I’d highly recommend that you run your applications against the ROS 2 testing repository since the packages there will be Dashing’s final state.
The earliest I expect to run the final sync is 2021-06-01T07:00:00Z which gives everyone a full week for testing and logging issues. No changes to Dashing will be accepted after this sync is complete.
Thanks everyone who has contributed to ROS 2 Dashing and everyone who has supported it as the first LTS release of ROS 2.
