Until now the FileZilla software on my PC is version

enter image description here

But on FileZilla's website

the latest version is 3.5.1 now.

I have check the packages website and Synaptic Package Manager on my Ubuntu. My FileZilla is same on package.

But I want to install the latest FileZilla on Ubuntu. Not version by 2010. Because I use FileZilla frequently. So I think it is an important software to me.

But what can I do for updating my FileZilla now?

Do I need to build from Source? Or some other choice?

Can someone help me? Thank you very much.

It's in this repository.

You can add the repository and install it with the following commands.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/programs-ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install filezilla

All LTS packages have been moved here (for easier rebuilding):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/programs-ppa2
