Wine Staging, a playground for experimental Wine patches not yet ready to be accepted to the mainline tree, is out with their newest release that's powered off last week's official Wine 1.9.9 release.

Over the past two weeks, Wine-Staging developers spent time cleaning up some of the patches they were carrying in and got them merged to mainline. For v1.9.9, they were able to mainline more than thirty of their patches that they'll no longer need to carry in this experimental tree. They also dropped their libcef system call workaround for Steam now that there's a command-line switch to workaround the CEF sandboxing.

Aside from that, various other patches were added to Wine-Staging 1.9.9 for help vetting the work prior to being mainlined. More details on the Wine-Staging 1.9.9 release can be found via today's announcement at Wine-Staging.com.
