Shares 1.0.0 Release Notes
Version 1.0.0
Release date: May 5, 2012
What’s New

  • GA release of Shares, Aspera’s multi-node web transfer application, which can be deployed as a single server solution, sharing content from a single content store and transfer node. Can also be deployed on a separate server, consolidating multiple content nodes into a single view, seamlessly managing user access and file transfers across all of the nodes.
  • Users can easily navigate across files and folders to locate and initiate a high-speed file upload or download.
  • A single view consolidates all underlying content stored across multiple content stores and nodes.
  • Powerful search, filtering, and sorting capabilities makes it easy to find individual files or folders in a very large content store.
  • Secure authenticated access with support for users, groups, and directory services.
  • Administrator role has complete control over access, including which nodes and directories are visible.
  • Granular control over all end-user operations at the directory level.
  • Real-time activity feed keeps track of end user actions and operations such as creating, deleting and renaming files and directories, and all administration / management functions.
  • Comprehensive system logging.
  • Configurable thresholds for administrative alerts such as the % or amount of free space available.

Known Issues

  • (#12883) When searching (browsing) recursively the sort parameter is ignored.
  • (#14532) The transfer rate and encryption settings can be circumvented by the user by manually changing the fasp URL before submitting. In order to enforce the settings, you need to set the desired values in the aspera.conf file on the node.
  • (#15396) Cannot download special file types like symlinks, block and character device files and socket files.
