bloom 0.3.3 has just been released, and a complete changelog is available


The most important change with this version of bloom is that it conforms to
recent changes in REP-0127, keeping in step with the recent release of
catkin 0.5.65:


These changes precipitated from discussions on the ros-sig-buildsystem
mailing list:


This basically means that you can no long release metapackages which do not
have the recommended CMakeLists.txt with bloom 0.3.3. Having the
recommended CMakeLists.txt file in your metapackages is a requirement
starting with Hydro, and a warning in Groovy. Since this is a non-breaking
change we encourage you to fix your metapackages for Groovy when/if you
decide to release a patch version into Groovy (it is not necessary to make
a special release just to fix this). Since it is required for Hydro and
encouraged for future releases into Groovy, bloom now requires it.

There is now a short guide on how to update your metapackages to reflect
REP-0127 on the catkin page of the ros.org wiki:


Sorry for any hiccups this may cause, and please direct any
questions/concerns to the buildsystem sig or answers.ros.org.
