Changelog and Release History

Changelog for package bebop_driver

0.7.0 (2017-07-29)

  • SDK 3.12.6 support (except 64bit Ubuntu Xenial, working on fix) - ROS API change: states/common/MavlinkState/MissonItemExecuted topic renamed to states/common/MavlinkState/MissionItemExecuted
  • Contributors: Thomas Bamford, Mani Monajjemi

0.6.0 (2016-11-02)

  • Use Parrot ARSDK as a thirdparty dependency - Instead of building the SDK inline, bebop_driver now utilizes the catkin version of Parrot ARSDK available at https://github.com/AutonomyLab/parrot_arsdk and in a binary form via the ROS buildfarm: ros-<DISTRO>-parrot-arsdk
  • Rename liblibbebop to libbebop
  • Full SDK 3.10.x support - ROS API change: states/ARDrone3/.. topics renamed to states/ardrone3/..
  • Disabling video stabilization works with Firmware 3.9 (tested on Bebop
  • Camera control API fix for SDK 3.10.x
  • Refactor H264 decode class to support dynamic picture size - Add support for determining picture size from the stream - Add dynamic buffer re-allocation on picture size change
  • Use av_frame_alloc() instead of the depr. avcodec_alloc_frame()
  • Fix inconsistent SDK 3.10.1 key values
  • Update autogenerated msgs/headers/docs to SDK 3.10.1
  • CMake: fix dynamic reconfigure dependency bug
  • Rename topic ‘navigate_home’ to ‘autoflight/navigate_home’
  • Add autonomous flight plans
  • Contributors: Jacob Perron, Mani Monajjemi

0.5.1 (2016-05-04)

  • Add bebop_description as a build dep to bebop_driver (fixes #45)
  • Fix inline build of arsdk to use the frozen manifest (fixes #46) - Prior to this release, the build script would always compile the development branch of ARSDK. This fix ensures that instead of default.xml manifest file - which represents the dev version of ARSDK package - release.xml is used by repo. This manifest file includes a certain hash for each ARSDK package that enforces a consistent build for ARSDK.
