Using pre-GA early access releases

Pre-GA releases of Neo4j are provided under our User Experience Improvement Program (UXIP), intended for evaluation purposes only. Use of this release 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.

Alpha releases are not appropriate for production use. There is no supported upgrade path, and the features and APIs may change before being finalized (hopefully reflecting your feedback).
