I think we are doing our users and upstream a disservice when we fail to package new stable releases for a long time, particularly in the run-up to a freeze. If WINE 1.0 or 1.1 works better for some applications, perhaps it should be kept around as an alternate version. But please let's have a recent upstream stable release as default (i.e. what 'apt-get install wine' will install).
