New Ignition releases 2022-01-24 (Citadel, Edifice, Fortress)

Highlights

  • NavSat / GPS sensors landed on Gazebo
    navsat_move22
  • More Link APIs:
    • WorldAngularAcceleration
    • AddWorldForce with a position offset
  • Configure lights via Ignition Transport topic (besides services), i.e.
    • ign topic -t /world/default/light_config -m Light -p "name: 'pointlight', diffuse: {r: 1.0, g: 0.0, b: 0.0, a: 1.0}, specular: {r: 1.0, g: 0.0, b: 0.0, a: 1.0}"
  • 16 bit heightmaps
  • Console writes are now synchronized, so messages never end up interleaved
    ignmsg << "That's so much better!" << std::endl;
    ignlog << "Agreed!" << std::endl;
    
  • Exit dialogs can be configured with custom messages and buttons that close only server / GUI.
