Farewell Indigo Igloo
indigo_thumb.png

We've reached a major milestone. ROS Indigo Igloo, our first LTS ROS Distribution has reached it's official end of life. This release had a lifespan of 5 years which is almost half of the life of the entire ROS project.

Indigo Igloo was first released in July of 2014. I has grown to be the largest ROS distribution ever with 2780 packages released as binaries. Indigo also was the first time that we targeted the ARM architecture by default and over 87% of the packages released successfully built on ARM.

The collective output of the community contributing to Indigo Igloo has been amazing. Just looking at the activity in the rosdistro index for indigo. There were 7581 commits over 1925 days. That's an average of 3.9 commits per day. The majority of these changes are releases of packages. There were 475 people who contributed to the indigo rosdistro which is an average of 16.0 commits per author.

These commits came from our world wide community. There were commits coming in at all hours of every day of the week across 1478 different days:
