is this tutorial suitable for gazebo 8? I keep getting errors: ```SetLinkVelocityPlugin.cpp:51:65: error: call of overloaded```

Ah sorry about that, the tutorial needs to be updated for Gazebo 8+, we will probably get to it in the coming days during the tutorial party:

I'm not so sure the tutorial has been updated. I keep getting this "use of undeclared identifier" error around the math and physics engine libraries when i used gazebo8 or 9 but 7 runs fine.
