SFTPPlus Release 3.43.1

Mon 07 January 2019 | general release

We are announcing the release of SFTPPlus version 3.43.1, which is a bugfix release.

The SFTP client now waits for a maximum of 60 seconds for the server to respond.

In previous versions it was waiting forever, causing transfers to stall if the server never responded to a request. This could happen if the server drops the connection during a transfer.

No other changes were done in this release on top of those in 3.43.0.
