Just hours after releasing Wine 4.11, the team maintaining the experimental/testing version of Wine -- Wine-Staging -- issued their release with more than 800 patches re-based on top.

Wine-Staging 4.11 is at 818 patches on top of upstream Wine, which is lower than previous releases thanks to a number of patches getting upstreamed this month.

There's only one new patch added this release in Wine-Staging and that is improving the IOleInPlaceActiveObject TranslateAccelerator, which should address a five-year-old bug report around certain web browser code and others not working correctly. There's also updated code with fixes around Wine's PE loader code.
