As for me, it either doesn't work, or crashes the moment I use it.
FYI, I'm getting instant crashes, too, C4D R21, Octane 2019.1.3. New scene, make Octane material, make Displacement Mixer node, connect Mixer Node to Displacement Pin>crash.
I haven't had the time to trouble shoot it yet, but know that it's not just you. I'll try to document it properly over the weekend.
Preliminary test seems to show that a bare Displacement Mixer node will cause an instant crash when hooked up to a Material, as will a Displacement Mixer node with only one incoming Displacement node. A Displacement Mixer node with two incoming Displacement nodes works fine.
So my guess is that something is expecting a particular kind of input, and then is very unhappy when it doesn't get what it expects. Give the Mixer two inputs, and everybody is happy when you link the Mixer to the Material. Depending on the order of operations you follow, you might never see this. I'll do more testing and generate proper crash logs tomorrow.
