(old thread but some additional background)

The RPi 3 CPU core was picked because it's a great 32 bit processor (and  happens to also work in 64bit mode). That said, the 1GB of RAM and the rate at which the hardware is being iterated, there has not been much movement in the Linux community to put effort into an arm64 build.

I understand the interesting in ROS on Raspbian. That said, we do have a workaround now that Ubuntu Xenial (with and without GUI) is available and supports the RPi3 hardware well.

It does leave limited options for RPi-like hardware which has focused on Raspbian Jessie as their prefered OS.
