1.8.0 (2012-02-15)

ROS 1.8.0 is a major overhaul to the build and message generation infrastructure. ROS messages can now be used outside of ROS and have their own independent infrastructure that can easily be combined with other build systems.

The ros stack now follows an FHS installation layout, which is described in REP 122. This new layout allows resources in ROS to be accessed via standard build tools, like pkg-config. The Python toolchain also installs in a normal manner, which means that roslib.load_manifest is no longer necessary for accessing Python modules in converted stacks. At the time of this release, only ros, ros_comm, rx, common_msgs, and actionlib have been converted.

The underlying build system is now CMake-based for C++ resources and setuptools-based for Python resources. These are unified via the Catkin CMake build infrastructure, which is still under active development.
