Written by Michael Larabel in WINE on 20 June 2020 at 06:29 AM EDT. 6 Comments
Wine-Staging has traditionally been around 800~850 patches over upstream while with Wine-Staging 5.11 this experimental/testing flavor of Wine has ticked down to just a 702 patch delta.

Wine-Staging is ticking closer to mainline thanks to more of the patches being deemed viable and ready for upstream. Among the work upstreamed into Wine and making Wine-Staging 5.11 smaller are a number of the NTDLL improvements as well as a number of DirectManipulation patches.

Wine-Staging 5.11 doesn't bring with it any new patches but does update several around NTDLL, Winebuild Fake DLLs, NTDLL syscall emulation, WoW64, and others.
