I am trying to perform navigation on my Robot using ROS. So far I am able to do SLAM using Hector SLAM. Now to perform Navigation I am considering hector navigation. But, when I saw the ROS Wiki Page of Hector_navigation, On the top of the page, it says that "Only released in EOL distros : Electric, Fuerte, Groovy, Hydro". So I wonder whether it is possible to use hector navigation in Kinetic?.

The navigation tutorials are the best place to start.

Hi, I have found this Pull Request that claimed to solve compilation error on Kinetic but I am not sure if it is able to be implemented on ROS Kinetic.

You could use the ROS navigation stack and navigate using move_base.
