Building off Friday's release of Wine 1.9.7 is now a new release of Wine-Staging.

The Wine-Staging 1.9.7 release this Sunday afternoon adds in more experimental functionality not yet ready to be part of mainline Wine. Wine-Staging 1.9.7 adds a number of improvements to Shell32, a component used for interacting with the file-system on Windows, as well as various multimedia improvements. The multimedia work includes fixes to Video For Windows (VFW) and a Media Foundation API bug fix. There are also a number of other smaller fixes bundled up into Wine-Staging 1.9.7.
