Using a Release Candidate

Release candidates are like Milestone releases of Neo4j, which are provided under our User Experience Improvement Program (UXIP), intended for evaluation purposes only. Use of a release candidate implies acceptance of the UXIP terms, which include allowing passive reporting about usage. Of course, we would also love to hear active feedback about your experience.

As beta software, release candidates are not appropriate for production use. There is no supported upgrade path, and while the features and APIs have been finalized, changes may still occur to correct errors (hopefully reflecting your feedback).
