    Any news when this fix will be released? It still doesn't work in any new 5.5 and 5.6 Unity versions.

    Why is this marked as resolved when it's clearly not?

    Another confirmation; 5.6.0b7 still crashes on Windows 10.
    Let's hope we get the fix asap

    Can confirm, 5.6.0b7 crashes.
    I didn't expect b7 THIS early in my last post. But lets hope for b8.

    @REDBREAD beta release builds eat kittens. 5.4.4f1 would be the last working version, 5.4.4p1+2 are broken tho.

    5.6.0b7 still crashes. Maybe it's fixed in the next beta or in the final release.
    Currently I'm not sure if waiting or going back to the last working 5.?.? is the way to go.

    5.6.0b6 was release before this issue was marked as fixed. I guess it is coming with b7 which should be around the corner if they keep up with their release cycle (
