To WAM and BarrettHand users who did not purchase their equipment
directly from Barrett:
Barrett Technology has just released a real-time controls library,
known as "libbarrett". The library is open-source (GPL license), written
in C++, and has convenient APIs for running 4-DOF WAMs, 7-DOF WAMs, the
Barrett Force/Torque Sensor, and BH8-280 BarrettHands. Libbarrett runs
on Linux operating systems with Xenomai 188.8.131.52
(http://www.xenomai.org/) and Xenomai's RT-Socket-CAN driver. The
library is tested using Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04, and 12.04.
With the exception of a few maintenance tasks, libbarrett replaces the
older btclient controls library, which is no longer under active
