Project Release Information
The Parallax family driver code was improved to reduce garbage collection chatter. A memory leak was plugged.
This is a maintenance release: stdout and stderr messages have been removed (all log4j now). Log levels have been adjusted to avoid scaring unsuspecting users with transition controller completions.
Constructor visibility was fixed for the Parallax serial controller. It wasn't possible to instantiate it via Spring before. If you're not using Parallax servo controller, or not using it with DIY Zoning or Spring, you don't need this release.
In servomaster-serial, the RxTx dependency was extracted from the Maven Central Repository. In servomaster-usb, Phidget QuadServo can now be used with Spring Framework (the DIY Zoning DZ3 branch requires this).
Servo range limits were corrected for the Parallax family of controllers. The driver release notes on the Servomaster project page were updated.
ServoMaster provides hardware independent abstractions to servos and servo controllers. It has implementations for several servo controller families, including Phidget, Pololu, Parallax, and SSC. It has support for servo and controller metadata, introspection, and capabilities discovery.
