Perhaps most importantly, this release finally includes the fix for the Steam overlay crash.

I have a great deal of respect for the WINE developers; from a gamers perspective, their work is important in order to play games that won't feature natively on Linux. If you're interested in WINE with additional features included (i.e. CSMT, CUDA / PhysX / NVENC Support, DXVA2 GPU video decoding, S3 texture compression (DXTn) support etc), you should check out wine-staging.
