Robo-gym v1.0.0 release with new environments and noetic support

Dear ROS community,

I am pleased to announce our next release of robo-gym : an open source toolkit for distributed reinforcement learning on real and simulated robots.

The toolkit is based on ROS and Gazebo.

If you don’t know about the project here is the post announcing robo-gym.

In this release:

  • Added Obstacle Avoidance environments
  • Added support for all the Universal Robots models: UR3, UR3e, UR5, UR5e, UR10, UR10e, UR16e
  • Added support for ROS Noetic
  • The Robot Server state can now be defined as a dictionary instead of a list to reduce errors caused by wrong indexing
  • Added support for Python 3.7, 3.8, 3.9 and stopped support for 3.5
  • Improved logging and debugging
  • Improved code quality and readability
