If I may make a humble suggestion, it would be to time another stable
(or semi-stable), regression-proofed release to roughly coincide with
the various distributions freezing schedules.  Ubuntu, for instance has
an upstream version freeze on Jan 19th and a Feature Freeze on Feb 2nd.
In my ideal world, we would have a Wine release just before that Jan
19th deadline, go into regression-fix and bughunt mode, and then have a
release come out around Feb 2nd that had no regressions relative to 0.9
and the Jan 19th release.
