New Features

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where KNN did not use the expected search space. This will improve the accuracy of results but may also increase the runtime
  • Fixed a bug where the GDS plugin would only work with the latest Neo4j patch release. It now works on all 4.3.x & 4.4.x releases.


  • A new column serverLocation has been added to gds.debug.arrow() that presents the actual location of where the server is running, as this can differ to the configured location.
