Description

Hi,

I'm currently trying to download the newest version of FileZilla client automatically.
During my research I found the https://download.filezilla-project.org/ webpage, with a client and server directory. In the client folder I found a file called "FileZilla_latest_win64-setup.exe" and thought this would be a symlink for the latest version of win64. Turns out this version is actually 3.53.1.0, instead of 3.65.0.0.

The server directory does not have a latest symlink, which is unfortunate.
Could you please update the lastest file to the latest version?

Thank you, best regards

The download archive is not meant for automated downloads.

To download FileZilla, a human with a web browser should go to https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client

If you want to (re-)distribute FileZilla through automated means, you need to host the manually downloaded file on your own infrastructure.

I'm currently hosting the manually downloaded file on that infrastructure already, but I wanted to automate that process.

It's unfortunate not to have a symlink to the latest version, while you're hosting the files already. That could have made things easier for different use cases.

Anyways, thanks for the quick respone and removing the old "latest" links.
