Dear FileZilla Author,
The download for each build lists an MD5 file. That's
great for people working with all the package files
offered, except the installer. A typical home user
doesn't need the MD5 file, because the installer will
verify itself at the start of the installation.
However, people with file library's would want the MD5
for the installer, to make sure what they're hosting
isn't corrupt. I know this to be true with Inno Setup.
Can someone who knows a thing or two about the
NullSoft install system respond whether or not my
assumption is also true with NSIS, the installer
FileZilla employs? If that's the case then it'd be
great if you ended every release notes with "Note: The
MD5 file is not necessary if you are using the
installer, because it'll verify itself at startup."
