Dear all,

We are happy to announce the release of Urbi 2 in an Open Source GNU 
A-GPL v3 license, available right now on

Urbi is a C++ middleware for robotics, developed from 6 years out of the 
Cognitive Robotics Lab of ENSTA ParisTech, and then by the Gostai 
spin-off company. Urbi has a large community and is now compatible with 
several robots including Nao, Aibo, Spykee, Segway RMP, Pioneer, Lego 
Mindstorm, Bioloid, Wifibot, Pekee II, iCub (soon), and the Webots 

Urbi includes UObject, a distributed C++ component architecture, and 
urbiscript, a concurrent and event-driven orchestration script language. 
The latest version of urbiscript is efficient and based on state of the 
art language approaches combining inspiration from OCaml, Io, Self and 
Python, with a familiar C-like syntax.

The forthcoming 2.1 release of Urbi SDK will include ROS compatibility 
and integration, which will allow Urbi users to benefit from existing 
ROS components.
