Sorry Steve, I've been too busy during the last 12 months and my new responsibilities don't let me enough free time for contributing to the plugin... I was expecting to be able to put my hands on the SDK during the holidays season but once again it turned out I've too busy with my job.
I agree the plugin needs severe overhaul, which I've been delaying long time waiting for new file format to come, but it's now too late for me to catch up and I hope the integrated plugin will meet the needs of the community. I'll be happy to contribute again but it's not my priority at the moment considering the tiny amount of free time I have.
On a side note, I might also no be able to use Octane in the near future as I'll probably stop using NVidia products in retaliation to changes made in their drivers that have affected my ability to do my job, despite the community already warned them about the nasty side effects (I had non-graphical but comparable annoyance due to changes in the linux kernel but this is open source and I could reverse myself the changes to make it workable again).
