Lutris is hosting several newer "staging" versions of Wine that aren't available in PlayOnLinux yet.

https://lutris.net/files/runners/

You can download them and extract them to the ~/.PlayOnLinux/Wine folders:

  • linux-amd64
  • linux-x86

There are a few other patched versions I would love to see in PlayOnLinux as well:

  • wine-vulkan-3.3-x86_64.tar.gz
  • wine-witcher3-2.9-x86_64.tar.gz
  • wine-staging-3.5-x86_64.tar.gz

Actually, it should be quite easy to directly use the Wine versions from Lutris in Phoenicis PlayOnLinux 5: just create a json file containing them and you can install/delete them from the GUI like any other Wine version.

You could also use the wine-staging from the official repository - winehq.org. 

On Ubuntu just add the repository: 

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key

sudo apt-key add Release.key

sudo apt-add-repository https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/

Then install Wine Staging: 

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-staging

The last version will be installed on /opt. If you want you could copy to POL wine versions folder. The POL also recognize this staging version as the system version, obviously.

If you're using Phoenicis, you can use the Lutris Wine builds with the files which I provide here: https://github.com/plata/phoenicis-wine-sources
