Upgrading to Indigo 2022.1 - does HomeKit bridge still work?

I'm planning to upgrade to the latest Indigo version 2022.1 . Does anyone know if the current HKB will still work? At this point I'm just trying to gauge upgrade efforts before giving it a go. My current HKB setup, with alot of devices setup via 2 HK bridge devices, has been working pretty well for a while.

BTW - i see the new HomeKit Link Siri plugin and planning to get into that too soon. But one step at a time since I'm a weekend warrior with this stuff!

I have ditched the previous HKB in favour of HomeKit Link Siri.

However, the previous HKB did work for me using Indigo 2022.1 before I made the move to HomeKit Link Siri.
Others have reported problems, so YMMV.

You can always revert back to Indigo 2021.2 if it fails for you as the upgrade process retains the previous version to faciltate this .

Yes, it still works. I'm slowly transitioning to the new plugin but still have the old one running.

rte there any plan to proceed in a further development of HomeKit Bridge as the latest version 1.02 is some years old?

Best regards

No. There's a new plugin in development by developer @GlennNZ that will replace it. The developer of the HomeKit Bridge plugin has moved on from Indigo, and TBH nobody else wanted to attempt to proceed with his codebase. The new plugin uses a newer pure Python open-source library which should result in a much more direct and reliable plugin.
