    Will VK_EXT_transform_feedback get into Mesa 18.3? Patches for radv and anv still haven't been merged yet.

      That is what I am interested in as well.

      Quite strange that these patches are still not on Mesa master.

        Last time I've heard, developers were working an making all tests pass which takes time.

          I hope they get merged. Even without much testing. It is an optional extension that probably won't break anything else, so let's merge it now and patch it later. Waiting 3-4 more months to have proper DXVK support is too much in my opinion.

            This series adds support for the new VK_EXT_transform_feedback extension. As far as I know, everything works but it's still all a bit experimental as we don't have very good tests yet. CTS tests are in-progress and we hope to have decent testing soon. We likely won't be landing them in master until we get better testing as the testing is currently really sketchy. However, the basics do work and Nvidia HairWorks now works in Witcher 3 with DXVK.
            So I really wonder if it will make in before 18.3.

                  If the tests are part of the VulkanCTS, passing them is not optional.

I believe that this extension is mandatory for release in 18.3 stable. Many players leave feedback on GitHub at Proton.
