Older vserions not available?

How can I get a copy of the last version of P3D v3.2.3? I deleted the 10gig file when I upgraded to 3.4 but for technical compatibility reasons, I now need 3.2.3 again . . but the downloads section only offers me the latest 3.4
Any help?

Re: P3Dv3.4 VERY SLOW 6.5fps

This is a brand new install to a clean disk . . no addons
As soon as I focus the P3D window the framerate drops to 7 . . if I click on desktop or any other window its 30+ and my TrackIR runs itP3D smoothly
I can push sliders full left or full right . . no difference 7fps if I'm in P3D

Re: P3Dv3.4 VERY SLOW 6.5fps

NOT SORTED OUT . . we are back to 7fps whenever the window is active. If you touch any other window (not P3D) then the P3D window reverts to 32fps and smooth as silk in TrackIR.
Help anyone?

Re: Dueling P3Ds
