Gazebo is one of the most popular simulators in the ROS ecosystem, and now it's fully integrated with ROS 2! This talk will cover improvements in the major rewrite of gazebo_ros_pkgs, including what's new in the Gazebo/ROS 2 wrappers: plugin loading/unloading at runtime, better flexibility to combine features, standardization of common functionality, and much more. Both new and long-time developers and users of the Gazebo/ROS wrappers will learn how to get started through a live demo and several online resources meant to ease the transition.
