To which I would add: the purpose of the development branch is to test new code and uncover bugs so they can be fixed. If you are routinely upgrading every two weeks, you have volunteered to be a tester. That's wonderful; the more people testing and filing bugs, the better Wine gets. But as two people have already told you, you have to actually file bugs; whining here about unspecified problems serves no purpose.

And if you are not willing or able to risk having to cope with regressions (e.g., there is an app crucial to your work), then you should stick with the version of Wine you  know works. No one is forced to upgrade every two weeks.
