  • Documentation: API documentation is now available inside the manual
  • C++: Missing but requested plugins result in an exception now
  • Java: New CITEC Maven server, update your config
  • Java: Ant build system was removed in favor of a pure Maven project
  • Java: Several small breaking API changes to be more standard compliant
  • Tools: Symbolic link tool invocation has been removed. Use subcommands
  • Tools: Logger uses monitor style per default now
  • Tools: Scopes are now arranged in a tree in logger-like outputs
  • Tools: New bridge command to connect separated bus segments
  • RSBag: Symbolic link tool invocation has been removed. Use subcommands

The following related projects have been released with RSB:

  • RSBag
  • RSB GStreamer Integration
  • RSB XML Support
  • RSB OpenCV Integration
  • Robotics Systems Types (RST)

In the process, about 70 issues have been created and subsequently 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] and the RSBag manual [3].

As always, bugs, feature requests and enhancement proposals can be
reported in the issue tracker [4].
