SD540C Motor Controller native library issues

So my team (we use java) decided to try out the SD540C motor controllers off of mindsensors.com this year and while the library is very straight forward, when we try and upload any code to the robot with the SD540C class in it, the robot program will repeatedly crashing saying the libHALAthena.so file is missing. Upon farther inspection this is true, and I was able to get the motor controller working perfectly fine with the 2017 FRC Plugins and Rio Image. Anyone else who uses these motors know if/when these libraries will be updated so the motors can be used in the 2018 season, or some other work around?

No way to know if MindSensors would notice this post. So I opened a support case and linked it.

MindSensors responded to the inquiry I sent acknowledging the issues with the 2018 software and explaining they need about a week to fix it.

We had similar issues with the SD540C last year where it could only be configured when the PDP was unplugged—ended up scrapping them for Victor SPs.

Glad to hear they are (semi-)working for your team!
