Revision history [back]

Gazebo is a standalone application that lives outside of ROS. Up to and including G-turtle, ROS has pulled in a specific version of Gazebo in order to maintain ABI and API compatibility with the rest of the ROS ecosystem.

Gazebo will be maintaining ABI and API compatibility, so ROS will transition to using the system install of Gazebo in H-Turtle.

We are telling people to use the standalone version of Gazebo because it is most actively maintained, updated, and tested version.
