Release notes: 1.0.0-RELEASE

1.0.0, the newest version of OpenRTM-aist for Python, was released on the 7th of May 2010. This release conforms with the OMG RTC Specification version 1.0 released in April, 2008.

Source code, Windows installers, and Linux packages are available from the OpenRTM-aist official website under the Eclipse Public License (EPL) or a separate commercial license purchased from the National Institute of Advanced Science and Technology.

Prior releases required installing many tools to create the build environment. This release includes installers, particularly for Windows, that combine all tools and necessary libraries, such as omniORBpy, into one. It is simple to install the entire OpenRTM-aist environment with a single action.
