New Releases 2023-01-25 (Citadel, Fortress & Garden)

Highlights

  • Fortress/Garden Set View Camera controller (perspective/ortho) from plugin configuration

    <!-- 3D scene -->
      <plugin filename="MinimalScene" name="3D View">
        ...
        <view_controller>ortho</view_controller>
      </plugin>
    
  • Fortress/Garden Add a reference visual to help visualize the anchor point for view control operations.

    We also fixed large / unexpected camera movement when orbiting / panning due to missing mouse events. See gz-gui#506 and gz-gui#502. There is also now a way to configure view control sensitivity gz-gui#504 and gz-sim#1799

  • Citadel/Fortress/Garden Add degree as an optional unit for rotation in the Transform GUI Tool. Radian is set to default.

  • Garden Made progress in support for fluid added mass for better modeling of hydrodynamic effects. sdformat proposal gz-physics#384.

  • Garden Add EnvironmentalData component which can be used to hold user-defined data (e.g. loaded from CSV files)
    for plugins to leverage. This has been used in gz-sim#1839 define currents for hydrodynamic system based on CSV files.

  • Garden Users can now load SDFormat model files by running gz sim <model file> as opposed to creating a new world file that includes the model

  • Fortress/Garden Add interface to allow systems to declare parameters similar to ROS params.
