Wine 2.0-RC6 was released on Friday as likely what's the final release candidate ahead of the stable Wine 2.0.0 debut. Shipping today is the Wine-Staging update re-based off this latest development release while also pulling in some new patches.

While Wine has been within a code freeze for Wine 2.0 for almost two months, Wine-Staging isn't doing a code freeze but continues re-basing off upstream Wine while adding more experimental/testing patches.

Found in Wine-Staging 2.0-RC6 is now emulation of deferred rendering contexts along with other Direct3D 11 (D3D11) enhancements. This update also has improvements for reading OLE32 property storages and various other fixes.
