Hmm, I guess you're right about it being a TO DO feature for Cycles.

Are you also testing this on Linux?
Hit TAB twice and then bake and it'll crash - if you just open it when it was saved with both objects selected and in edit mode it will bake out ok and not crash, if you do TAB and TAB again to go out of edit mode into object mode, and into edit mode again and hit bake, it'll crash
Select the high poly, select the low poly, go into edit mode and hit bake - Blender crashes instantly.

Tried it in in 2.80-8c620c8e2b3 and normal baking is still broken in the same way as all other baking is broken right now - seems to be catching faces from the other side of the mesh - regardless of the raycast setting.

it worked for a single color, but when the color on the High Poly got varied (attached example) it is apparent that the bake result is patchy and broken and looks exactly like the effect with all other bake types, AO, normals, etc.
Regardless of if the file came from 2.7 or 2.8 - however there seems to be a small difference in the final effect based on that.
If, in the 2.8 created file I change the shader on the High Poly from Principled BSDF to Diffuse BSDF the result is that consistently only half of the faces in the low poly box bake out.
Huh, you're right, when I bake the diffuse in 2.8 using a file created in 2.7 it works.

I tried baking a simple model with Cycles recently and the problem persists, the low poly mesh had edited normals using the blend4web plugin, and cycles ignored them during baking, while internal gave me a correct, and quite visibly different result of the bake.

Any progress on this?
Doing a model with custom normals on the low-poly and the expertimental dispalcement on the high poly... and kinda can't progress until this is fixed, is there an ETA?
