We don't have a fixed date for this yet. We want to make sure it passes our internal tests first, so we can send out a proper version.
We aim to release soon™

Thank you for the answer

I have some questions

Unity has some limitation on its lightmapping

1. Baking normal maps

2. Full support for transparent surfaces with color or texture

3. Memory usage during bake

Does Octane fixed these issues ?

1. Normal maps should work as intended.
2. I'm not sure on transparent surfaces.
3. It shouldn't take much more data to do the baking compared to normal rendering.

You can find detailed information about baking from Octane here

Is it confirmed whether Octane lightmap baking will support all Unity light types, including emissive materials and IBL (cubemap), for the initial release?
