New zoom controls and interactions
We now provide scroll interactions to zoom in-and-out of the graph visualisation, providing an alternative to the simple zoom buttons.
With this release, you'll now be able to use trackpad zoom gestures or a mousewheel with a modifier key to zoom in and out of the visualisation. On mac you can trigger zoom with ⌘ + scroll and on Windows and Linux ctrl + scroll. The modifier is required in the normal Browser view so we don't interfere with page scrolling, but in full screen the modifier key isn't required.
We've also added a handy fit-to-screen feature (underneath the zoom buttons) so that you can instantly fit all nodes into the view - handy when you're looking to see all your query results on screen at once.

Updated visualization library
We've made some under the hood upgrades to the d3 visualization library that powers the Browser visualization. You shouldn't see many differences in the overall layout and interactions, but should find the layouts stabilizes more quickly and have slightly smoother interactions on larger result graphs. Do let us know if you have any comments on our feedback page.
Parameter Assistance
Cypher queries with placeholder inputs are most performant when parameterized. These allow the Neo4j query engine to cache the execution plan. If you're not familiar with query parameters you can read more about them here.
Browser today allows you can declare parameters with the :param command for a single parameter, or the :params command to declare an object of parameters.
In this release, we're making it easier for you to construct a params object in the editor. When the query you are trying to execute has undefined parameters, you'll now see a help link under the error to assist you in setting parameters. Clicking it will construct a :params command for you with pre-existing parameters already set and placeholders for you to populate the missing parameters.
We hope this will help new users learn the parameter syntax more easily and be an added convenience for experienced users too.

    to reveal the full value.
  • The properties view now shows square brackets
    []
    around lists to they are easier to identify as lists.

New Properties panel
This release we've changed the way we present node properties. Until now, properties have been displayed in a relatively small area at the bottom of the graph visualisation. We've heard your feedback and suffered the same frustrations ourselves trying to view property-rich nodes in this space.
From this release, properties are now presented in their own dedicated panel. We've also moved the Overview, which was previously split between the top and bottom, to this panel. This Overview will show when you have no nodes selected or hovered. It itemises the labels and types present in the current graph visualisation and allows you to restyle them:
0
When you hover or select a node or relationship, its properties are displayed in the panel. You can also change styling from this view, just as you can in the Overview:
2
The panel itself can be collapsed or resized if you need to give more or less space to the graph visualisation. The panel's last expand/collapse state will be remembered and subsequent result frames will observe that latest state, ensuring the panel is where you need it to be.
The property names and values can be copied individually or in bulk for use elsewhere:
4
And finally, to help you understand the data type of a property, hovering a property will reveal its type.

Help make Browser better
We've optionally been collecting product analytics data from our Browser users running in Neo4j Desktop for some time and we're now rolling this out more widely to other areas you may run Browser. When you run Neo4j Browser outside of Desktop for Aura, you'll now be informed that you're opted into product analytics. This helps us make Browser better, but you will of course be given the option to opt out. When running in Desktop and Aura, product analytics settings will continue to be managed by those applications.

We hope you enjoy this latest release and as always look forward to hearing your feedback.
New in 4.3.2
new
While there are no big new features for this summer release, we've taken the opportunity to make a whole host of small but important bug fixes and improvements. The full change log is available here, but these are the most obvious highlights:
  • If you've ever noticed that navigating the cursor between wrapped lines in long Cypher queries was odd, you'll now see much more conventional cursor movements between lines. CleanShot 2021-08-17 at 18
  • When complex structures (eg a node with all its properties) are returned and viewed in the table view, we now wrap less and make better use of horizontal space. There's also a handy copy shortcut. CleanShot 2021-08-17 at 18
  • When you arrange favorites into folders, you can now export the entire folder to a zip or file of your queries. CleanShot 2021-08-17 at 18
  • And finally, an issue that caused the bottom bar of the result visualisation to disappear in fullscreen mode has been fixed. You can now enjoy fullscreen mode in all its glory again.
We look forward to brining you our next release of Neo4j Browser soon!
New in 4.3.1
new
We've been busy listening to your feedback and making tweaks to Browser, take a look at what's new in this latest release!
Redesigned result frame
The overall structure of the result frame has been tweaked slightly to make better use of available screen space:
  1. The frame buttons for pinning, collapse, fullscreen and close now appear together in an elevated section. The play button has been moved into the query editor area.
  2. As a result more screen width is now available for you to edit queries.
CleanShot 2021-06-22 at 11
"Send to editor" workflow makes a return
You can once again send your query from a result frame back to the main editor. Simply hold down CMD (Mac) or Ctrl (Windows/Linux) when clicking the the query in a result frame to send it to the main Cypher editor.
We’ve also made improvements to the way the result frame query collapses so it gets out of your way when you don't need it.
CleanShot 2021-06-22 at 11
Improvements to guides
A number of improvements have been made to the guides sidebar, including:
  • More scalable pagination controls for large guides
  • Option to immediately execute queries from Cypher snippets (by clicking play icon)
Support for Neo4j 4.3
We’ve added a small number of changes to support the latest and greatest Neo4j release, including:
  • New Cypher keywords
  • Use of emoji to denote the user’s Home/Default databaseCleanShot 2021-06-22 at 14
And finally we're made a number of bug fixes, including:
  • Rendering of nodes with Large property values in Graph visualisation (eg GDS embeddings)
  • Focusing the reusable editor properly on start of editing
We hope you enjoy this release and look forward to hearing more of your feedback!
