It wasn't a glossy translucent specific problem but something affecting all diffuse/glossy and transmitting materials.
With the previous version I could reproduce the problem with rough glass too, but that is also good now.

Re: glossy translucent and bump

Hmm, it doesn't work for me, and the file dates in the build are yesterday morning...

I think the deployment has failed:

Re: combine normal map and bump map

Not sure if it matters, but I rather mix them after both of them are transformed to bump:

Re: Add Stop to DLCS or any other pre-rendering phase

Just another side idea: If cache evaluation is dividable why not start rendering with the first bunch of entries and refining step by step. This would reduce waiting for first result, i.e. fast but inaccurate then improving stepwisely accuracy with the advantage to stop at any time. Something like ...

Re: glossy translucent and bump

I confirm lacilaci's finding, that Glossy Translucent doesn't work together with bump maps. It works with the June 26 version of LuxCore, but does not with the Aug 8 version.
