Is it possible to use ROS (gazebo_ros) with the recent nightly builds of Gazebo8?

Hi

I want to use actors in Gazebo as described in this tutorial:

http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=actor&cat=build_robot

As far as I know actors are not properly supported in the gazebo version before gazebo8, that's why I use a nightly build of gazebo8. This works so far.

Now my problem is, that I have to include these actors in a project which is also using ROS. Connecting gazebo8 to ROS does not work for me since the gazebo_ros package does not support gazebo 8 yet.

Is this right or can somebody think of a way to make this work? Is there maybe a late version of gazebo7 which already properly supports actors but still works with ROS kinetic?

Best regards, lumeier
