License

The core of ROS is licensed under the standard three-clause BSD license. This is a very permissive open license that allows for reuse in commercial and closed source products. You can find more about the BSD license from the Opensource.org BSD 3-Clause page and Wikipedia's BSD Licenses entry.

While the core parts of ROS are licensed under the BSD license, other licenses are commonly used in the community packages, such as the Apache 2.0 license, the GPL license, the MIT license, and even proprietary licenses. Each package in the ROS ecosystem is required to specify a license, so that it is easy for you to quickly identify if a package will meet your licensing needs.

Supported Docker versions

This image is officially supported on Docker version 1.6.2.

Support for older versions (down to 1.0) is provided on a best-effort basis.
