To check the status of gmapping in ROS Melodic, see #q303253 (the procedure, not necessarily the answer itself of course).

For building it yourself from sources, see #q300480.

I agree with the answer by @gvdhoorn As I've just stumbled upon this: gmapping has been released into melodic two days ago. So it should be available with the next sync...

@mgruhler: I've just updated #q300480. Not all of gmapping has been released, but it most likely will be (ref the referenced issue).

@gvdhoorn: you are correct. I missed that the link to the rosdistro PR from ros-perception/slam_gmapping is actually pointing to the PR for ros-perception/openslam_gmapping.

slam_gmapping is not released in melodic . still you can create map by using gmapping and create static tf between map , odom and laser .

openslam_gmapping has been released. slam_gmapping is in the process of being released.

The former is actually already available in the staging repositories and should be available in the main repositories after the next sync.

See also status_page/ros_melodic_default.html?q=gmapping.
