A good way to find out is to look in MAWS, here's the entry for Dragon's Lair:

http://maws.mameworld.info/maws/romset/dlair

Near the top, there's this entry:

driver status preliminary

"preliminary" means what it says - the driver still has a lot of work to go, things aren't working, etc.

Scroll down further, and you can see other useful information, such as all the progress that is being made in MAME, for example here's a very small part of the progress:

WIP:

# 0.139u2: Changed VSync to 60.054442 Hz in clones Dragon's Lair (European) and (Italian).
# 0.137u2: f205v added correct ROMs to clone Dragon's Lair (Italian).
# 0.129u4: Changed Custom sound to Laserdisc Analog.
# 0.127u7: Added 2nd Z80 (2.5MHz) CPU.
# 0.127: Aaron Giles added DISK_REGIONS to all laserdisc drivers. Changed visible area to 704x480.
# 0.126u5: Changed visible area to 720x240 and VSync to 59.940052.
# 0.121u1: Changed palettesize from 9 to 16 colors in clones Dragon's Lair (European), (Italian) and Space Ace (European).
# 30th September 2007: Mr. Do - A few months ago, Jcroach finished up the vector job for a Dragon's Lair scoreboard. I wasn't in too big of a hurry to release it, as the games still aren't working yet; plus I didn't have a speaker cover for it yet. Well, I finally got the speaker cover, so here it is. The games still aren't working, but at least you'll have the artwork when it's ready. The scoreboard is used in Dragon's Lair, Thayer's Quest, and for cabinets that were converted to Space Ace. (Still looking for a dedicated Space Ace scoreboard, btw. Let me know if you find one. You can see one here). Also included in Thayer's Quest is a scan of the keyboard, so you know what you're doing. And thanks to Ad_Enuff for that nice little graphic to finish off the speakers.
# 0.113u2: Changed VSync to 59.940000 Hz.
# 0.111u4: Added clones Dragon's Lair (European) and (Italian). Changed VSync to 59.939999 Hz.
# 0.111u3: More updates to the laserdisc emulation, based on more complete understanding of how the discs are encoded and how they will eventually be stored [Aaron Giles]. Added Custom sound (2 channels) and changed VSync to 59.940060Hz. Added dipswitches 'Engineering mode' and 'Service Mode' and removed 'Diagnostics' and 'Joystick Feedback Sound'.
# 12th December 2006: Aaron Giles - I'm looking for someone, preferably in the U.S., who owns an original Dragon's Lair laserdisc and is willing to loan it out for a couple of months. Either contact me via my webform (http://aarongiles.com/email.html), or reply to this post. Thanks!
