From Kristof Robot via ros-users: 

I am happy to announce Hydro and Indigo versions of razor_imu_9dof, a
package that provides a ROS driver for the Sparkfun Razor IMU 9DOF
(http://wiki.ros.org/razor_imu_9dof).
It allows assembling a low cost Attitude and Heading Reference System
(AHRS) which publishes ROS Imu messages for consumption by packages
like robot_pose_ekf.

Major updates (see Changelog [1] for details):
- catkinized
- upgraded to be fully compatible the ROS navigation stack (and in
particular robot_pose_ekf)
- major upgrade of the wiki documentation (http://wiki.ros.org/razor_imu_9dof)

improve odometry -  .

For more information, and detailed instructions, see
http://wiki.ros.org/razor_imu_9dof.

I'd like to thank Tang Tiong Yew for the good work on the previous
Fuerte and Groovy versions, and Peter Bartz for the excellent
firmware.
Last but not least, a big thanks to Paul Bouchier, who triggered this
upgrade, and was a major contributor overall.

Enjoy!

Kristof Robot
