Release Date: 15 June 2020
Neo4j 3.5.19 is a maintenance release with many important improvements and fixes.


  • The BatchInserter now honours the dbms.read_only setting. Furthermore, read-only batch inserters are faster to shut down because they don’t rebuild indexes
  • Planner bugfix to avoid cases where the planner gives up without considering all possible plans
  • Fix displaying large integers in new table correctly
  • Fix only executing relevant background queries (auth, cluster)
  • Fixes issue where created indexes would stop being resampled after restart
