Hi Everyone,

We are pleased to announce that the rosdistro format has been updated
according to REP 141. To accommodate this change several tools have been
updated. rosdistro 0.3.0, rosdep 0.10.25, rosinstall 0.7.3,
rosinstall_generator 0.1.6, and bloom 0.4.7. You will need these minimum
versions to work with the new rosdistro. They are now available in the ROS
Apt repositories and for non Ubuntu users also in pypi via pip

You may encounter several errors. See this answer for clarification



Update your ros core packages:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade python-rosdistro python-rosdep
python-rosinstall python-rosinstall-generator python-bloom
