Surfaz,
A quick investigation would have told you to contact me before beginning working on that. You didn't.
Besides, you'd have found the git repository where FZ packaging is done in Debian, and seen that work is already in progress to fix this bug.

Why should I contact you?

"Unlike Debian, Ubuntu packages usually do not have a designated maintainer."

What bug? I just gave a debdiff for the new release of Filezilla that
fixes (LP: #326578), (LP: #312246) and (LP: #310167)

Also I added libdbus-1-dev because it is needed by Filezilla.

What problem is in what I did? Or is it .. only you can update this package?

It is not fair that after I take time to check the changelog of the
new version, make the debdiff and upload it, you come and tell me
that.

Even though packages in Ubuntu do not have a maintainer like in Debian, when someone knows the package and/or knows upstream and/or actually does the maintainance, people usually ask him before touching the package.

In this case, I used to maintain this package in Ubuntu while Debian couldn't maintain it, and since it's maintained in Debian I'm the co-maintainer there. Just check debian/changelog, you'll see my name in many places. See debian/control, my name is there as well. And with my @ubuntu.com email address, so you could guess that I'm an Ubuntu guy. Check the bug reports (open and closed), I touched almost all of them. That's why you should have contacted me.

Also in debian/control, you'd have found a link to the Debian git repository: http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/filezilla.git. There you can see I made changes a few hours ago for fixing this bug (the bug report "please update FZ" we're talking in).

As far as I can see, there is no major problem in the debdiff you provide (though things are missing comparing to what is going to be uploaded to Debian), but it's just a waste of time for this package. Work is done in Debian. If you want to help out, of course it's welcome, but ask the right people before.

No problem, as you said you are "an Ubuntu guy"...
