The number system should be an indicator:Version:

These are stable versions
Version:    0.9.54-i586-1vl59
Version:   1.0-i586-1vl59

These are the development versions. Notice the rc? Stands for release candidate.
Version:   1.0rc1-i586-1vl59
Version:   1.0rc2-i586-1vl59   
Version:   1.0rc3-i586-1vl59
Version:   1.0rc4-i586-1vl59   

To directly answer the question:
Version:   1.0-i586-1vl59

I'm at this moment packaging wine 1.1.1 for VL 5.9-- it's a development release thus may not be totally stable.
but it adds some new functionallity to Wine. You may want to give it a try if you need to use it with Office 2007 or Photoshop.

What's new in this release:
Fixes for Photoshop CS3 and Office 2007 installers.
More progress on gdiplus.
Support for Unicode files in regedit.
Improved video playback.
Many Richedit fixes and improvements.
Various bug fixes.

It should be in the testing repository in a few days.
Cheers  ;)

Thanks bigpaws, kc1di,

for now I go with the stable version...

I'm probably not a helpfull tester for the new wine 1.1.1 for VL 5.9,
because I neither use Photoshop CS3 nor Office 2007.

If I could help testing, let me know what to do!
