when I run gazebo, the errors appear:

1\Error [ModelDatabase.cc:290] Unable to parse manifest.xml for model[http://gazebosim.org/models/doublependulumwithbase] 2\ Error [ModelDatabase.cc:290] Unable to parse manifest.xml for model[http://gazebosim.org/models/kitchendining] 3\ gazebo: /usr/include/boost/smartptr/sharedptr.hpp:418: T* boost::shared_ptr<t>::operator->() const [with T = gazebo::common::NumericAnimation]: Assertion `px != 0' failed.

why appear these? how to solve it?

manifest.xml files are being deprecated, and replaced with model.config. We are doing this to remove naming conflicts with ROS. New models in the database will not have manifest.xml files. So the solution to your problem is to upgrade Gazebo.

Am I assuming right that the update to 1.5 for ROS Groovy users will solve this issue?

I suppose that this errors occurs because in the newest version of Gazebo, the manifest.xml has a different structure and your parser (as mine, probably 1.3) is deprecated to parse this manifest.xml.

I hope you understand me, sorry for my English. Cheers.
