We are excited to let you know that Neo4j 5 is now available in the Aura platform. When creating a new Aura graph instance, you’ll now be able to take advantage of the new improvements in version 5, which include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Faster K-Hop Queries: a new Cypher runtime operator provides a newer pruning approach, resulting in orders-of-magnitude performance improvement
- Enhanced/New Indexes: Enhanced FULLTEXT and new RANGE and POINT indexes enable more granular and flexible query entry points
- Graph Pattern Matching: Label expressions in MATCH clauses, nodes and relationships can be filtered using more sophisticated boolean expressions
