Dear ROS users,
I am pleased to announce the first release of humanoid_walk.

This release provides C++[1] and ROS[2] interfaces to allow humanoid
robot walking trajectories generation.

Humanoid walking algorithms often take a set of footprints as input
and provide feet and
center of mass trajectories as output. These reference trajectories
are then forwarded to
the real-time controller.

This stack provides generic interfaces in order to wrap walking
generation algorithm into
ROS. It also provides an easy to use trajectory generator which can be
used to generate

The stack is available here: http://www.ros.org/wiki/humanoid_walk
...and is hosted on GitHub: http://www.github.com/laas/humanoid_walk

Bug reports, comments and patches are welcomed!
