6.3 supports dynamically resolved DNS hostnames in the hostmask if you prepend it with a colon ":". So hostmasks of the form "" means "Fred@[whatever is right now]". This should be really useful for those folks who have lots of wildly different IP addresses.

The problem is if you are running a locked down FTP server so that only known IP/hostnames can connect. Thus a really simply knock-knock algorithm (just connect to different ports in order) is used to add your current IP to the list of known IPs so you can connect... It's simple, can be emulated with bogus FTP sites using different ports to do the knocking, or you can use the new simple GUI which also take command line arguments for 1-click use.
