Are there plans to release gazebo5 packages for ROS Indigo (i.e. ros-indigo-gazebo5-*)?

After speak with Steve, Nate and the rest of the team, we have released the ROS Wrappers for Gazebo5. Only for ROS Indigo. I've created a pull request to update the tutorial.

  # if you have the repository:  
  sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-gazebo5-ros-pkgs

ROS Jade will bring support out-of-the-box for gazebo5 and gazebo_ros_pkgs.

We are currently packing up gazebo5 for Jade. We don't have plans to release gazebo5 into indigo at this point. I assume you have a strong desire to see this happen?

It would be nice to have packages for Indigo.

Hi Nate, thank you for the answer. Of course, it would be great to use and test gazebo5 with Indigo already. However, gazebo4 is working fine for me at the moment. Thus, no hurry on my side.

Actually I think we are planning to release them.

You mean... release Gazebo 5 for indigo? Would be cool! Any idea when this can happen?

Btw, @ahb when you mention gazebo4 you mean the gazebo version currently shipped with ROS (2.2.3)?

Thanks you all for the proposal and the feedback.

hey guys, I moved to gazebo5 and I got a bunch of new problems; anyone a bit bored and 5 minutes to waste can take a look at this question? Thanks!
