Besides switching to yearly, time-based releases, the upstream Wine developers have decided to make Wine-Staging an official part of the project.

For many months now Wine-Staging has been around and following the bi-weekly Wine development releases with that work plus all sorts of experimental/testing patches added on top, such as the Command-Stream Multi-Threading work. Wine-Staging has a decent following since generally they tend to carry a lot of interesting but experimental features prior to their formal introduction in the Wine code-base.

At WineConf 2015, it was decided that Wine-Staging will now be an official part of WineHQ. The Wine-Staging project will now retire their current bug-tracker in favor of the upstream Wine bug tracker, Wine-Staging will be integrated into the regular development process, and other changes will come.

More details on the Wine-Staging changes to come with now being an official part of the Wine project can be found via this project announcement.
