That's true, but that's how it is.

We are on the way to do, but it is not as easy as it seems because the
goal of WineTools is to make supported apps running out of the box and
the goal of the developers is to race to version 1.0 of Wine as fast as
possible. This need not to be contradictory but sometimes we are
rushing in different directions.

No, no! This is not true! If you know, that sometimes things like that
happen (they also do in Windows) then you can use WineTools backup
function after installing everything you normally need. Do that
*before* you update your Wine. This can also happen without WineTools
as regressions sometimes happen.
