ROS Kinetic approaching end of life

Hi Ubiquity team,

Whats the plan for migrating ROS version off Kinetic? Kinetic is reaching end of life in April 21 (see here http://wiki.ros.org/Distributions).

Yes we’re working on getting a Noetic version out.

cool thanks, how are you going with it? Will there be an upgrade guide?

Well given the scale of the upgrade it’ll definitely have to be an image swap to maintain reliability, so the new images will contain all of our upgraded repos, you’ll just have to move your code from the old images onto the new ones and make sure it compiles under Python 3. There’s probably no practical way around that.
