We are happy to announce MoveIt! is now released into ROS Kinetic LTS (Long Term Support)! Kinetic is now the recommended ROS version that comes with the newest capabilities and bug fixes for MoveIt!.
Notably, in Kinetic, C++11 is now fully utilized for MoveIt! – which means you must build all packages that include MoveIt! headers with support for C++11.
Some new features and bug-fixes added since the last release into Jade, :
If you’re running your robot packages with ROS Kinetic, and/or if you want to try the newest MoveIt!, start at moveit.ros.org/install
While future releases will primarily target Kinetic, the maintainers are working towards a new binary release into Indigo as well. ABI-compatible changes are still being released into previous ROS distros.
–Your friendly MoveIt! maintenance team.
