Version 2.0 of the simulator includes quite a few feature changes to make the simulator more useful. It will not be ready for release for at least a week, maybe more. However, some parts of it could come in handy for people currently using the simulator. Note though that not all bugs have been tested or fixed, but it seems to run well enough.

Version 1.3 fixes another bug with using ReadSonar. The code has been double-checked and retested, so hopefully there won't be further problems with that function.
Version 1.2 fixes a bug with sonar readings (thanks Michael for reporting it).
I have figured out how to assign the default download. Version 1.1 can now be downloaded from the front page.
Version 1.1 is out, but for some reason SF thinks 1.0 is the latest. Go into the Files tab -> Toolbox to download version 1.1. This version mostly improves the realism of Sonar and LIDAR sensors.
Because of the recent attack on SourceForge, they have disabled their file release uploaded. This is preventing the full zip from being uploaded/downloaded. Full functionality should be restored later this week. In the meantime, I'll try to host the zip somewhere else and post here when I have that location.
The simulator has moved out of beta with its version 1.0 release. It will be used this semester in the Autonomous Mobile Robots course at Cornell University.
The Control Systems Lab class at University of Maryland will be using the simulator this semester. The focus will be implementing feedback control on velocity and navigation.
The first simulator toolbox with full functionality is now uploaded. All documentation has been updated accordingly, and there are several new supplemental documents as well. The main project website should be going up shortly.
