Minor Release: Connect 3.4.2 for Windows, Linux, and OS X

Aspera Connect is an install-on-demand browser plug-in that powers transfers between desktops and Aspera Connect transfer Servers. Lightweight and compatible with most standard browsers, it launches automatically when users initiate FASP™ transfers.
