Wine Staging – Special wine version with bug fixes and more features

Sponsored Link
Wine Staging (formerly wine-compholio) is a special wine version containing bug fixes and features, which are not yet available in regular wine versions. The idea of Wine Staging is to provide new features faster to end users and to give developers the possibility to discuss and improve their patches before they are sent upstream. We also intend to create a community of wine developers to share experience and to make it easier for beginners to start hacking on wine.
