The ROS 2 team is preparing for the release of Eloquent Elusor and we’d like to invite you to help us by testing out the alpha or releasing your own packages to Eloquent. For more information on the schedule for the release of Eloquent Elusor, consult the release documentation.
Testing the Alpha
ROS 2 is available with multiple RMW implementations on multiple platforms and architectures. Depending on your system configuration, you can help us out by doing any of the following:
Build ROS 2 Eloquent from source on your preferred platform. Be sure to use the
masterbranch version of the repos file (described here ) as Eloquent is still in pre-release.
- Install and use the binary archives available for MacOS Sierra, Windows 10, or Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic.
- Install and use the ROS 2 Ubuntu Bionic packages as they become available. (AMD64 status , ARM64 status )
- Follow the ROS 2 tutorials with one or more different RMW implementations.
- Run some examples and demos .
After testing, reply back here to let us know what worked and what didn’t work, along with what platform you’re on and how you installed ROS 2.
If you run into problems, all the usual recommendations apply. You can ask questions on https://answers.ros.org with the
eloquent tag or report issues on https://github.com/ros2/ros2 or the relevant package repository. Be sure to follow the contributing guidelines and issue templates.
Releasing your packages
If you maintain a package you would like to release in ROS 2 Eloquent we encourage you to do so by following the guide to releasing a ROS 2 package with bloom .
