I noticed something a bit confusing in the changelog. One of the entries suggests that SSLv3 support was disabled, yet some later changes check for AUTH SSL support. Wouldn't this be pointless if there's no SSLv3 support?
Changelog for FileZilla 3 (4596 changes):
2014-10-15 09:42 codesquid, revision 6124
2014-11-03 09:58 codesquid, revision 6159
Remember whether AUTH TLS/SSL worked, though don't act on this yet.

AUTH SSL tells the server to initiate a SSL/TLS handshake. This command does not mean only SSL can be used.
The only difference betwee AUTH TLS and AUTH SSL is the name and that some older servers don't support the former.

The command used does not determine the TLS version. Both AUTH TLS and AUTH SSL are just aliases, the do the same. The latter command is just kept for legacy backwards-compatibility reasons.
