Baking in Cycles?

I’m assuming the feature is not added yet, but does anyone know when Baking will be added for Cycles?

I’m working on an animated short, but I don’t know how much use I’ll be able to get out of Cycles without being able to bake renders.

It should be in. One of the people behind Sintel had some test animations going that had been rendered Cycles.

Well you don’t need to bake to do animation. It just saves a lot of time. Actually from what I’ve seen, Cycles renders faster than BI for a lot of things.

Do you have a link or a name or something?
