How to install FileZilla 3.22.1 released on Ubuntu

   FileZilla is a free, cross-platform and full-featured FTP (File Transfer Protocol) solution for the Linux and Open Source ecosystems. It is also compatible with the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.

New features:
  •     Directory listing filters can now be exported and imported
  •     Added the "not all" filter match type to filter out all items not matching all conditions
  •     Added the "not all" search match type to search for all items not matching all conditions
  •     Building and running FileZilla now depends on libfilezilla >= 0.7.0 (https://lib.filezilla-project.org/).
  •     Building and running FileZilla now depends on GnuTLS >= 3.4.15

FileZilla 3.22.1 changelog
  •     OS X: Work around a nasty bug in XCode where programs explicitly compiled for older versions of OS X were silently pulling in features exclusive to the new version, resulting in crashes at runtime
  •     Fixed a potential crash when using SFTP
  •     Bookmarks with the "Directory comparison" checkbox set now work correctly
  •     MSW: Fix background clearing issue on the size format settings page
  •     MSW: Toggling the log timestamp option no longer results in wrong log colors
  •     Fix for premature queue completion action
