Does this release include that Wine improvement patch by Stefan Dösinger?
The patch that improves Direct3D performance.

I don't think so. Nothing about D3D command stream in git log.

That's a shame. I'm having a hard time figuring out how to compile it myself. Unlike other patches which are just text and I can generally compile myself, this one seems to use git (which I have no clue about) and apparently it's not just one patch.

SabunThat's a shame. I'm having a hard time figuring out how to compile it myself. Unlike other patches which are just text and I can generally compile myself, this one seems to use git (which I have no clue about) and apparently it's not just one patch.
To make it work You will need 1.7.1 version.
Start by getting git version from http://www.winehq.org/git

to accomplish this do:
git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git wine-git
then enter newly created wine-git directory.

After that get version 1.7.1 by using git:
git reset --hard wine-1.7.1
This should get You version 1.7.1.

Now in other terminal extract cs.tar.bz2 into for example /tmp directory. I will use /tmp dir as reference from now on.

Go back into terminal with wine directory(You should be inside it), and run following command:
git am /tmp/cs/*

It will apply all the patches cleanly.

Now You have a patched wine.

Thank you for the instructions sobkas. Currently the cs.tar.bz2 I have is from the reddit page. So, whenever  I try to do git am /tmp/cs/* I get:
Patch format detection failed.

I think I have the wrong cs file. Where else can I get cs.tar.bz2 from? I'm scouring the wine-devel list, but I think I'm not looking in the right place or just not seeing it.

EDIT:  I think I found it in the wine-devel list. Strangely it downloads as attachment-1.bin but after renaming it to cs.tar.bz2 it's definitely correct.

So You were able to apply the patches or not?

Yes, I was able to. Thank you. I am compiling it now
Can't wait to try it. In regedit I also have to enable CSMT right? What about the StrictOrderDraw?

Enable CSMT and disable StrictOrderDraw, that should be enough.
