Release Date: 1 October 2020
Neo4j 4.1.3 is a maintenance release with many important improvements and fixes.


  • Handle relationship property reads on missing relationships after OPTIONAL EXPAND
  • Add CREATE IF NOT EXISTS and DROP IF EXISTS to the index and constraint management commands to make them optionally idempotent.
  • Fixes a volumetric checkpoint triggering issue where database could be stuck in a state where checkpoint was made, but no logs were pruned and so checkpoints would be continued to be made even tho no transactions were committed
  • Prevent crash in dbms.killTransaction when log level is set to debug
