    Fairly straightforward question - there's been a lot of talk about SRLs lately, but the feature is half-implemented yet, not well documented due to being experimental, etc. Do SRLs give us the tools to finally implement MSAA in a deferred pipeline?

    Yes you will be able to do this. We won't provide deferred MSAA out of the box but there will be enough API exposed that you could implement it yourself.

    That's some fantastic news.
    Is the capability already in either the 5.6 or 2017 beta? If so, would you mind pointing in the direction of the more relevant functions?
    Thanks a lot.

    Not currently. It's 'almost' got enough API exposed in 2017.1, but we have not exposed tex2dms texture support in the shader / render texture pipeline. It's being worked on and the progress here is good. I think this API will exist in 2017.2 (internally we have already branched 2017.1, so no new features will be going in, just bug fixing).

    What's the status on this? Deferred MSAA would be a godsend for VR applications.

    Wouldn't mind knowing the current state either.

    Texture2DMS has been in the 2017.3 release notes for a while now.
