In their usual timeline, Wine developers release a new development version every two weeks, but since the last release (1.1.26), the two week periods are already surpassed. The two weeks limit should be reached at July 31 and it's almost three weeks.
Are they running out of gas or what? Nobody knows and i think it will be explained in the next development release of Wine.
Slackware packages for Wine was stopped updating since 1.1.24, but there is a new release for 1.1.26. On SlackBuilds project, it's even worse. The last update was for 1.1.17.
