We are excited to announce that this year’s World MoveIt! Day will be Thursday, October 25, 2018! The event is a day long international hackathon to improve the MoveIt! code base, documentation, and community.
MoveIt! is now released into ROS Melodic LTS (Long Term Support)!
We are excited to announce that MoveIt! was selected for 3 Google Summer of Code (GSoC) grants for the summer of 2018.
In recent years there has been a migration related to ROS discussions, Q&A, and collaboration to ROS Discourse. Inspired by ROS-Industrial's migration this month away from Google Groups, and we believe its time for MoveIt! to migrate as well.
We are excited to announce that the robotic arm manufacturer Franka Emika is partnering with PickNik to sponsor a MoveIt! codesprint to further improve MoveIt!’s tutorials, documentation, and website.
