Gazebo-classic 9 has reached its official end of life (EOL) on January 25th, 2023. It was a long-term supported (LTS) version of Gazebo-classic first released in 2018.
Some of the key features introduced in Gazebo-classic 9 are:
- DART 6 integration with closed kinematic loops
- Integration with Ignition Fuel
- Parallel threaded islands in ODE
- Improved shadows
- Camera lens flare
- Attach lights to links
Gazebo-classic 9 was included upstream in Ubuntu Bionic and Focal and was paired with ROS Melodic
Several libraries have reached their EOL along with Gazebo-classic 9. Their latest released binaries will remain available at packages.osrfoundation.org, but support will no longer be available.
|Library major version||Final release|
We recommend all Gazebo-classic 9 users migrate to a supported release, like Gazebo Garden as soon as possible. It is also possible to migrate to Gazebo-classic 11 (EOL in 2025), but it is not encouraged as development has shifted to the new Gazebo.
A big thanks to everyone who contributed to Gazebo-classic 9!
