Orocos Real-Time Toolkit 1.0.1 Released

The Orocos development team announces the first bug-fix release of the Orocos Real-Time Toolkit 1.0. This release improved the online documentation, fixed bindings to Xenomai and RTAI and contains additions to the Corba interface.

The Orocos Components Library version 0.2.1 and the Orocos Kinematics and Dynamics Library version 0.2.1 have been released as well. These releases include mainly documentation updates. The 'Component Template' package v1.0 has been released as well, which allows Orocos Component builders to quickly construct a new component. The template offers a ready to use build system (using cmake), an example component and an example test program.

Components for Control

The Orocos Component Library uses the Real-Time Toolkit (RTT) for constructing all its components.

Some components use the Kinematics and Dynamics Library (KDL), the Bayesian Filtering Library (BFL) or other libraries.

The OCL v2.0 is now an integral part of the Orocos Toolchain and only contains components for setting up and monitoring applications. Applications or hardware specific components have been removed.
