I installed FieZilla, which immediately offered me a new version. I accepted and was sent an archive. I did not find a readme or other installation guide. For example, the de-archiving program asked me what to name what I was extracting. I assume that has to be a name that will be recognized by the OS desktop environment's main menu. I don't know what that name is, although maybe someone on the Internet knows. I assume I have to configure configuration files external to FileZilla, but I don't know which files or to say what. I assume the installed directories and files have to go to certain locations, but I don't know where and it's probably not the de-archiver's default destination, which is the /downloads/ directory for my login. And I think I see "nightlybuild", perhaps as an owner's name, which suggests that I'm upgrading from a stable version to an unstable one without notice, even though the right-hand version number is "0".
Please include an installation guide. A root-level readme.txt file might be all we need.
Please tell us if the new version is stable, especially in the old version's offer of a new version.
