Installation of patch works great.
Everything from the previous version still works as well.
What does not
What was not tested
Nothing much as has changed between versions as far as what you need to do in wine to get it working or how well it works in wine. I played for about 4 or 5 hours last night with the patch and it didn't crash once, which was really nice.
