Dear Maintainers,
it seems that every distribution is far behind your actual release, which contains the

Can you please consider to create a snap or flatpack?
that would give the biggest part of linux-community (OSX as well?) instant access to your releases and they would work, independent from the distro(-flaws). … …

IMHO, I would prefer a snap over flatpack, because they have a centralized store and I can search and install from *all* available snaps with one cmd from the cli: "snap find filezilla && snap install filezilla", then i can just run filezilla by it's name, without any complicated run cmds.
Auto-update included!

In opposite, flatpacks are cluttered over the whole internet, and hard to find, need extra cmd-syntax to start, etc. by far not so convenient, but hey, I would not complain ;), but may be others, not so CLI-proofed users.
autoupdate only if I add every special repository (if there is one), ending up in the need to maintain a repository-list on all machines…
Just another sysops nightmare.

Thanks for considering

No, both are flawed concepts to begin with. You can just compile from source.

they would work, independent from the distro(-flaws).
