Will the INDI Nexdome driver connect and operate the new Beaver system now being installed in Nexdome observatories?

I'm interested in this as well. I had tried the existing indi_nexdome and of course it does not connect, gives a serial port error.

I did a bit of probing and it turns out the commands are completely different between the old and the new Beaver cntlr. Plus, the baud rate is very different.

I contacted Jaime at Lunatico (manuf of the Beaver cntlr) and he gave me some info to go on. He also stated that a new INDI driver is being worked on.

Can anyone confirm this and let us know a timeframe? I just assembled my dome, am ready to take first light, and here I am manually turning the dome ... !

HELP!

Peter, the NexDome Beaver INDI driver is ready. It's in the std distribution. Make sure you select "NexDome Beaver" and not "Beaver".

Thanks Sifan for your work on this.
Unfortunately Nexdome is charging $500 to upgrade from the original Arduino boards to the new Beaver system, so I have to skip that for now.
