Revision history [back]

There are no major changes or differences between hector_slam for electric or fuerte and mapping should work for both. OTOH, the current fuerte gazebo version available from .debs appears to still be buggy. I noticed quite a few things that worked correctly in electric's gazebo and now are broken in fuerte (for example broken URDF models).

If you do not need anything that is available only in fuerte, I'd recommend sticking with electric for the moment (in case you want to use gazebo and experience issues).
