Components documentation is hosted on the ros.org wiki.
Support is provided through ROS Answers .
Which branch should I use?
Branches come in two flavors:
- development branch,
- release branch
Package for each ROS release is maintained on separate
hydro-devel is the Hydro development branch whereas
hydro is the hydro release branch.
master means the next ROS release.
If you are a user you should use a release branch as they contain
stable and tested versions of the packages. If you are a developper
you must provide new patches against
master. You may also provide
version-specific bug fix again older releases.
- Never implement new features in old branches (i.e. not master). These Pull Requests will not be accepted. If you provide a bug fix then you may ask for it to be backported. ABI/API breakage prevent patches from being backported.
- The only action allowed in release branches is merging the development branch in the current branch.
Warning: the Fuerte branches still rely on the legacy
build system. We recommend you to update to a newer ROS release. Only
minimum maintained will be done for this release.
Additional development guidelines are provided in CONTRIBUTING.md.
This stack supports the following ROS releases:
The master branch holds the development that will be available in the next ROS release.
