Which dynamixel package shoud be used?

Does anyone have experience with both "dynamixel_motor" and ("dynamixel_sdk" or "dynamixel_workbench") If I am understanding correctly, it seems that "dynamixel_motor" has long been the package ROS community has been using. However, now there is an official package from ROBOTIS called "dynamixel_sdk" and "dynamixel_workbench"? But, it does not yet seem popular.

I am leaning toward the official package because it is official package but does it have all capabilities of "dynamixel_motor" package? Has anybody tried these new official packages?
