The post-1.3.32 means it is in the git repository:


Git is a control version system http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revision_control it's for managing changes to documents, programs, and other information stored as computer files. If you want to get it you have to clone that repository and then compile Wine, but you probably don't know how to do it. Here you will find the wiki about Wine Git:


First you need to decide where it should be cloned (your home directory or somwhere else). Than issue this command from terminal:

git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git (by default it will create wine folder)

This should leave you with a checked out Wine Git repository in the directory wine, which you can then build. The clone takes around 30 minutes for me on an ADSL connection, and transfers around 175MB of data, the size of the complete WineHQ repository.

Before moving to the next step you should install all the packages necessary to build Wine from source. On Debian and Ubuntu (also derivatives) there is a very neat command:

sudo apt-get build-dep packagename

Replace the packagename with wine1.3 and install everything (those are the dependencies). Next you should read about installing multiple Wine versions on one system:


I'm using that method without problems. If you find it to hard or to time consuming (it will take at least 2 hours) you better wait for Wine 1.3.33 release. Which should be available on 18th November (Wine unstable has a two weeks relase cycle).
