I have refreshed the installers at the top of this thread with:

2.5.2.3
- Compiled against Octane 2.05.2. IMPORTANT: This release changes the way the exposure is calculated. See the Octane Standalone release notes for 2.05 for details. The plugin will NOT convert old exposure values from scenes saved with previous versions of the plugin to the new system, so if using a gamma <> 1, you will to adjust the exposure accordingly
- Improved error handling when loading XML files (used as default rendertargets and materials)
- Fixed Icon on AutoCAD 2015 button bar

This is mostly done - however I've had a couple of issues reported against the other plugins, so I am trying to get those sorted out prior to completing the AutoCAD plugin. I'd rather you had a trouble-free experience updating to 2.10. I expect it will be another week or so.

I have refreshed the installers at the top of this thread with:

2.11.1.4
- Compiled against Octane 2.11.1
- Added Highlight Compression to the Imager settings (see Standalone release notes for details)
- Added additional Color Correction node pins (see Standalone release notes for details)
- Added new Noise texture node (see Standalone release notes for details)
- Added additional kernel pin Static Noise (see Standalone release notes for details)
- Stopped the "Texture" node being transferred when changing the Environment node from Texture Environment to Daylight (and visa-versa)
- See Standalone 2.10 release notes: Improved sampling in the direct lighting and path tracing kernels.
- See Standalone 2.10 release notes: Replaced the path termination strategy.
- See Standalone 2.10 release notes: Added new option "Coherent mode" to the direct lighting and path tracing kernels.
- Addition of Render Passes to the Kernel, and addition of the Render Pass combo box to the Viewport
- More user-friendly pin names (these now match Octane Standalone)
- Fixed bug causing opening the viewport to be slightly delayed
- Added option to import a material from an Octane Standalone ORBX file. The ORBX file must have one single material not connected to a mesh in order for the import to work. This option is available via the rightclick menu in the Materials tab

Thank you Paul ...testing. Hopes that in some release you will include support for AEC objects :D ... MEP and Architecture are Autocad family.

AutoDesk would need to provide support for those elements in the API - which unfortunately they have not yet done.
