Community meeting: Fortress (September 2021)

Hi, community! :fire:

The 6th major release of Ignition is coming out at the end of September, so we’d like to dedicate this month’s community meeting to demoing all the cool new features that will be available on Ignition Fortress :ignition: :japanese_castle: !

Among the new features introduced in Fortress, we have new visualizations for debugging, segmentation and bounding box cameras, plugins for underwater simulation, and much more! Check out the full roadmap to have an idea of the features that will be demonstrated during the meeting.

:arrow_right: If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to get your Ignition Fortress swag!

:arrow_right: Also, help us review tutorials before the release during the Fortress Tutorial Party and get a free Fortress T-Shirt!

:arrow_right: Finally, you have 4 more days to vote on the name of the next release!

Stoked to see the progress of this release. Especially the segmentation camera looks exciting!

Random sidenote: For me, the calendar event link creates an event on the 24th of March instead of the 29th of September :slight_smile:

Oops, it’s fixed now

Here’s the recording of today’s community meeting!

Thank you everyone who presented at the meeting, and also to those who joined! We did 15 demos of features developed in the past 6 months, which will be available in the Fortress release tomorrow!
