Package Summary

This package contains a recent version of the Kinematics and Dynamics Library (KDL), distributed by the Orocos Project. For stability reasons, this package is currently locked to revision 31715 of April 26 2010 (C-turtle) and revision 30401 of August 8 2009 (Boxturtle), but this revision will be updated on a regular basis to the latest available KDL trunk. This ROS package does not intend to modify KDL in any way, it simply provides a convenient way to download and compile the library, because KDL is not available from an OS package manager. However, this package might contain some temporary patches to KDL while they are being applied upstream, or while a permanent fix for a problem is being discussed by the KDL community.
