 With these changes, we adapt the system to the state of the art in the ROS community and base it as much as possible on developed third-party libraries. From my point of view, not everything has become better with the switch to catkin and rosjava, which is based on '​gradle',​ yet another buildsystem. However, both rosbuild and rosjava_jni are deprecated, so we decided to do the transition even if the newer tools have their shortcomings. With these changes, we adapt the system to the state of the art in the ROS community and base it as much as possible on developed third-party libraries.

-The source code can be found in the [[https://​github.com/​knowrob/​knowrob/​tree/​indigo-devel|'​indigo-devel'​ branch at GitHub]]. It is feature-complete with respect to the old version and actively in use by the IAI group in Bremen. Despite the name, the code also works in ROS Hydro. The documentation in the wiki is being adapted, but not all pages have already been updated. We have documented the changes made in [[https://​github.com/​knowrob/​knowrob/​issues?​q=is%3Aissue+milestone%3A1.0+|Github issues]] and have created a [[/​doc/​catkin_migration|migration guide]] to help to adapt existing packages.+The source code can be found in the [[https://​github.com/​knowrob/​knowrob/​tree/​indigo-devel|'​indigo-devel'​ branch at GitHub]].

 We'd be glad if you could try the new version and give us feedback! We will also further test the system and work on updating the documentation. We'd be glad if you could try the new version and give us feedback! We will also further test the system and work on updating the documentation.
