We’re preparing for the release of Noetic Ninjemys on May 23rd, and would like to ask for your help in testing the pre-release.
What needs to be tested?
Installation and documentation!
- ROS Noetic Installation
- ROS Tutorials
- Your packages (and if they work, consider releasing them to ROS Noetic)
How do I get the pre-release?
ros-testing apt repo to get the pre-release ROS Noetic Debian packages on Ubuntu Focal or Debian Buster.
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros-testing/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-testing.list'
If you need stable packages, then don’t forget to remove that when you’re done testing!
