Plans to upgrade?

Are there any plans to upgrade to Ubuntu18 and use melodic instead of older versions? Also as I mentioned in another post, we have old gcc version. it would be helpful to have in C++17.


Hi @cshreyastech,

Yes, we have plans for updating to Ubuntu 18 and ROS Melodic soon. However, it is a tough process since we need to make sure that every single course works 100% in ROS Melodic. Meanwhile, let me remind you that you can already create Ubuntu18 + ROS Melodic projects using our ROS Development Studio, here:

As for the gcc update, if we confirm it’s not going to affect the courses, it’s probably going to be done within the next couple of weeks.
