I checked on the website. When you view your library there, you have under "My Collection" the option to display only recently updated games.

THANK YOU. As you realized, you have to use the web client.

Sadly none of the updates in my library are meaningful- most of them only updated the Windows version, according to the notes. (This includes a Braid update, which got me momentarily excited.) But I've viewed every one to reset the updated count to 0, and I'll keep an eye on it now.

When you set your library view to Mac and Updated, you should see among the results a lot of DOS games which have received updates recently.
I don't see an option for "Updated" in GOG's client? I can sort by "Newest", then view details of each one in the list, click on the version # to see the changelog. I think that's good enough to see if anything has been updated recently, but if there's a better way I'd appreciate a hint.

GOG is silently (and slowly) updating their DOS games to fully 64-bit versions. The new wrappers are no longer based on Boxer, but are simpler DOSbox wrappers without Boxer's amenities. (Still work fine, though.)
Sadly nothing in my library has been converted yet, if filtering my library by the 64-bit tag is accurate.

Where did you learn about this?

As you can see, the codeweaver-product comes totally free as download for wineskin winery.

Good to know, but I'm still going to give them some money if they pull this off. It's not clear the WINE open source community cares enough about Macs to have done this work in a timely fashion, if at all.

Regarding GOG Mac games:

Perhaps not wine-wrapped dos-programs, but dosbox-wrapped dos-programs.
You are quite right! I should have remembered that, given how much time I spent trying to get USB Overdrive to remap my joystick's buttons for GOG's XWing. Thanks for the correction.

Not sure if there is, or will be, a Mac 64-bit DOSBox.
