    It's marked as fixed, but it's definitely not in 5.4.0b16 (latest beta).

    Ha ha ha lol. I even stop getting frustrated with such things. Next time you make cool trailers dont forget to mention such things, allright ? What next basic things stop working, meshes will stop importing ? Textures will not render ?

    One year later and still not fixed. We are on v5.2.2 now, what gives?

    Still not fixed in latest beta. Dynamic objects do not cast shadows onto objects with baked lights.

    "Status: Fixed in future release" What does this mean? In which Version? Is there a beta release? ETA?

    This is still not fixed 5.2 Stable. So you can not have any realtime shadows when you bake something? This makes the engine for most cases unusable...

    This bug is still present in Unity 5.2 with deferred rendering and directional specular mode.

    Not prioritized and no workaround? Not very reassuring.
