ROS Lunar Loggerhead Release

Greetings ROS users,

Happy World Turtle Day! :turtle: [1]

I am pleased to announce that the 11th ROS distribution, Lunar Loggerhead [2], is now available on Ubuntu Xenial 16.04, Ubuntu Yakkety 16.10, Ubuntu Zesty 17.04, and Debian Stretch.
32-bit ARM (armhf) packages are available on Xenial, and 64-bit ARM (aarch64) packages are available for Ubuntu Xenial and Debian Stretch.

To install ROS Lunar, refer to the Installation page on the Wiki:

http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Installation

Check out the Migration guide for a changelog of new features and API changes:

363 packages in the ROS ecosystem are in the initial release of Lunar, compared to 1244 currently in Kinetic. You can see the released packages on the status page for Lunar:

http://repositories.ros.org/status_page/ros_lunar_default.html

And you can compare the versions of packages in Lunar and other active ROS distributions here:

If there’s a package missing in Lunar that you’d like to see released, please:

  • check if the package can be released here:

http://repositories.ros.org/status_page/blocked_releases_lunar.html?s=6&r=1

Even though we’ve made the initial Lunar release, it’s never too late to add packages to Lunar (or Kinetic or Indigo) for upcoming syncs.

Lunar T-shirts (and hoodies) should come through in the mail this week.
You can still order a variety of stickers at:

We’d also like to announce the name of the next LTS ROS distribution, which you can look forward to downloading a year from now:

Melodic Morenia

Thank you to all of the maintainers and contributors who helped make this release possible.
We couldn’t do this without you.

  • Mikael and the ROS Team

TDLR: Lunar Loggerhead Release is now also on Docker Hub! :whale:

I’d just like to piggyback off this announcement and let everyone know that the Official Docker Hub repo for ROS has also been updated to include the Lunar release:

hub.docker.com/_/ros

Simply run this command to download and start a session in a Lunar container:

$> docker run -it ros:lunar

Notes:

  • The implicit latest tag, reserved for the latest LTS, remains pointed to kinetic.
  • Ticket an issues with the images: github.com/osrf/docker_images
  • Don’t forget to stare our official repo so others might discover it!

P.S.
Mikael and I ran into some issues shipping the latest release to DockerHub yesterday, and so would like to enable some continuous integration into the osrf/docker_images repo. If you have suggestions or examples of using such for docker build testing, feel free to voice it here: github.com/osrf/docker_images/issues/53
