Building off last Friday's release of Wine 1.9.5 is now the Wine-Staging update that adds in extra patches.

Similar to Wine-Staging 1.9.3 that brought better support for older Windows games, Wine-Staging 1.9.5 has continued that trend in allowing Wine to better handle running Windows games on Linux and other supported operating systems.

Wine-Staging 1.9.5 is primarily focused on shipping extra packages for better supporting older Windows games/applications, there is improved compatibility back to the Windows 95/98/ME days. There is also a variety of other bug fixes and more.

More details on Wine-Staging 1.9.5 can be found via this morning's official release announcement at Wine-Staging.com.
