Hi all,

visualization_common 1.1.0 and visualization 1.1.0 have been released. This
is an **unstable** development release to try out features considered for
inclusion in their 1.2 versions.  visualization 1.0 will work with
visualization_common 1.1, but visualization 1.1 requires
visualization_common 1.1.  The largest changes in these releases involve
additions to the visualization_msgs/Marker API, see below for details.

visualization_common 1.1 changelist:


   visualization_msgs <http://www.ros.org/wiki/visualization_msgs>


         Added support for meshes -- MESH_RESOURCE type and
mesh_resourcemember. This allows you to specify a mesh resource by URI

         Added TEXT_VIEW_FACING type and text member
         - Added frame_locked member that specifies the marker should be
         continually re-transformed into its frame
         - Added colors member for per-point/line color

   ogre_tools <http://www.ros.org/wiki/ogre_tools>

      PointCloud: Added outlines on billboards and boxes

visualization 1.1 changelist:


   rviz <http://www.ros.org/wiki/rviz>
   - Added dialog which is shown when it cannot contact the master. No
      longer fully initializes and then closes immediately (r28449)

      TF Display: added "Frame Timeout" option, which will fade out frames
      when we haven't received data about them in a certain amount of time.
      Defaults to 15 seconds. (#3825, r28455)

      Ogre.log file is now suppressed by default, with a command line option
      (-l) to turn it on (r28432)

      Fixed relative paths passed to -d command-line options (r28429)
      - Marker Display

         New MESH_RESOURCE marker type that can load meshes from disk/web

         New TEXT_VIEW_FACING marker type for displaying text
         - New frame locked option for markers, which automatically
         retransforms them into a frame every update cycle

         Support for per-point color for POINT, CUBE_LIST, LINE_LIST and
         LINE_STRIP markers. Does not yet support per-point alpha though the
         capability exists in the message.

         POINT, CUBE_LIST, LINE_LIST and LINE_STRIP markers no longer throw
         away messages with empty points members (#3839, r28128)

      Camera Display now uses
      with a dropdown to choose from the available transport types. It does not
      yet have any way of knowing which transport plugins are loaded however (
      #3974 <https://code.ros.org/trac/ros-pkg/ticket/3974>)
      - Moved rendering into an idle callback, which should be a better way
      of keeping the UI responsive
