Well, this simply means there will be no "official" Wine release for some time
to come.
We have two possibilities:
1. do major changes and debug until it's ready, then commit it
2. do major changes, commit them and wait for the patches to arrive

Obviously 2. means there will be *no* new official release before it's fixed
in its entirety (or at least only relatively "trivial" bugs remain).

Just to make sure that you know what has to be done in such cases :)

Wine is believed to be slightly (!) beyond alpha level, so we should act

And yes, (more or less) the only two applications I tested last week
have been broken in a strange way, too.
(which is not too astonishing, given the extent of that window management
change, and given that one of these apps always had some issues with windows)
