No progress on Canon CR3, though.

yeah, unless Canon explicitly states that it's ok, there's no way around the current potential legal issue with the patent in CR3 format. darktable has the technical implementation ready for release, but can't. Not holding my breath.

The later comments on this another Darktable issue related to the topic seem to be actually somewhat hopeful that the support might be released:

It also refers to this Exiv2 issue:

This is just a result of cursory check for the situation though, I haven't been following it actively, so I might be missing something.

I guess the fact that Canon hasn't yet got mad at RawTherapee and ART developers releasing builds with rudimentary CR3 support is somewhat promising; maybe they're OK with this, even if they do not have interest in actively supporting open source projects.
