I would like to know when and in what form the smach viewer utility will be released for jade.
The indigo release has the packages ros-indigo-smach-viewer and ros-indigo-xdot, but there are no such packages for jade. Downloading the smach_viewer source code to my ros workspace shows that smach_viewer depends on the package xdot, but xdot was deprecated during the ros groovy release, yet was still released in hydro and indigo. Searching around shows some talk a few years ago about xdot being replaced with rqt_dotgraph, but I haven't found anything besides a broken link.
What's the state of smach_viewer in ROS Jade? Will the old xdot and smach_viewer packages be released in jade? Will an rqt version be ready for jade?
