Gazebo Newsletter: April 2018


Gazebo Newsletter 8 April 2018

The Gazebo newsletter is back, with the addition of Community Contributions!

The Gazebo Roadmap has been updated to reflect the development direction of Gazebo and the Ignition libraries. Most new work is happening in the Ignition Libraries where a physics abstraction layer is taking shape, message logging is almost complete,new widgets are being added to a plugin-based graphical user interface, and a rendering abstraction can make use of either a path tracing or opengl rendering engine.
