There will SOON be a new stable version.  However, we do want you to try 
the release candidates to insure that they do not regress or break what 
you 'know' to work.  In addition, if you report a bug in Wine 1.0.1, it 
will be ignored. That is because it is almost two years old and over one 
thousand fixes have been applied since its release.

Also, this may NOT be a Wine problem but rather a problem with Ubuntu.  
Since they switched to pulseaudio as their primary audio 'driver', 
problems have been reported that did not exist in prior releases.
