[Wine] Wine help for newbie

Hi all -
I have a few questions - OK, a million questions, but just
a couple today. I hope this is the right list ...
I migrated (finally!) from Win7 to OpenSuse 12.1 64bit,
KDE4 a couple of weeks ago on a Dell Inspiron laptop dual
core Intel cpu/2Gz, 4meg RAM. So in most things I am
groping around in the dark.
This distro included Wine 1.3.30.
I successfully loaded my pet email client, TheBat! v
188.8.131.52 with it, and though there are a few
inconveniences (I couldn't load my filters or AB into it,
can't see fonts), and it runs a little slower than it
should, on the whole, it's very successful. It's also the
only Win package I've been able to run so far, but that's
for another day.
I was so pleased that I submitted it to the AppsDb, but it
was rejected because Wine 1.3.30 isn't on it's list.
I'd be willing to upgrade to 1.4, if I could figure out
how to do it, and if I thought I could get help tweaking
it if the result is worse than what I have in this current
version. Going to the dl page at Wine offers v1.4 only for
OpenSuse packages to 11.4
So that's the first question - how to upgrade?
The second is, I need to install a spam filter plugin to
TB!, and I don't even know where to start.
Thanks in advance -
