Adding the #define USE_TEENSY_HW_SERIAL was what solved my problem with the Teensy 3.6, Arduino 1.8.5 and ROS Kinetic.

While I was running through the tutorial "CreatingMsgAndSrv", I ran into problems when trying to use

rosmsg show beginner_tutorials/Num

The terminal displayed a long error with

The manifest (with format version 2) must not contain the following tags: run_depend

This sounded strange, as the tutorial had just told me to add the lines with run_depend. After searching a bit, I found here or here (mirror), that the run_depend tag is deprecated in format 2, and was only used in format 1.

This mistake also is introduced in the "CreatingPackage" tutorial. Should the tutorials maybe mention something about the two different versions, similar to the rosbuild/catkin differences?

Could somebody advise as to where I should report this mistake, or how I can help to get it updated?
