Robotics Service Bus: We are starting to phase out support for RSB 0.15

Added by J. Moringen about 1 month ago

RSB 0.17 has been released. As a consequence, we are now starting to phase out support for RSB 0.15. Changes between releases can be found in the RSB manual.

As a first step, we have disabled the Jenkins jobs associated to the 0.15 release. For now, artifacts remain available for download, but no new builds will be performed. In case of no objections, we will remove these jobs entirely at some point.

Note that, with some exceptions, unsupported legacy releases remain buildable using the cognitive interaction toolkit infrastructure.

Robotics Service Bus: RSB 0.17 has been released

Added by J. Moringen about 1 month ago

The development activities in this cycle lead to the following improvements:

  • Java: Support for the try-with-resource construct
  • Java: Improved transport introspection
  • Python: More convenient synchronous RPC with timeout
  • Common Lisp: Support for UNIX domain socket in the abstract namespace (Linux only)
  • Common Lisp: More efficient scope parsing and construction
  • RSBag: More efficient retrieval of events from log files, improving batch processing and replay performance

The following related projects have been released with RSB:

In the process, about 5 issues (including some very longstanding, complicated ones) have been resolved.

This RSB release is available in the following forms:

  • Source archives
  • Pre-compiled self-installing archives
  • Debian packages for different Ubuntu Linux versions
  • Pypi packages
  • Maven package for rsb[-xml]-java and rst (on CITEC server)

The former two can be downloaded from the continuous integration server:

Debian packages can be downloaded from the repository server [1].

Installation instructions and links for downloading can be found on the "installation" pages of the RSB manual [2], the RSBag manual [3], and the RST manual [4].

As always, bugs, feature requests and enhancement proposals can be reported in the issue tracker [5].

For more detailed release notes see:

We will continue to try and create new releases every two to three months.

vdemo: Parallel starting / stopping of components

Added by R. Haschke 4 months ago

Previous approach didn't allow for truly parallel starting of components.
Also, the level order was not considered when manually starting several groups in parallel.
The new fully event-based scheme, should resolve those issues. Please report any open issues.

Attention: The remark from previous change still holds true:
Before, components were started in given order, -w option specifying to wait for a component before proceeding to the next.
Now, all components on the same level are started in parallel. -w option simply states the timeout period, before we give up to wait for this component to be ready.
