For those of you running Wine-Staging for its extra patches like the ability to run DOOM, Direct3D Command-Stream Multi-Threading, or other work that hasn't yet found its way into mainline Wine, the Wine-Staging 2.0-RC4 update is now available.

Wine-Staging 2.0-RC4 pulls in all of the bug fixes from the upstream Wine 2.0-RC4 released on Friday. Plus this Wine-Staging update has some regression fixes of its own, some smaller improvements, and improved FlipToGDISurface DirectDraw handling. Those curious about the FlipToGDISurface can find it documented via MSDN.
