HIL with Xplane on Plane 3.8(BETA5)

HI All,

From reading the posts on the forms it appears the HIL is not supported any more?
Is there any plan for this to be brought back?

If so will htis still maintain the intergration with X-plane?
Ive been using the SITL configuration with X-plane and it has worked brilliantly, however I would just like to hook the system up to check all the servos are responding as expected.

Im using the Pixhawk 2.1 so testing would be nice.
