Another glorious day at Graph Story! A day in the Graph is like a day on the farm. Every meal’s a banquet! Every paycheck a fortune! Every formation a parade! I LOVE the Graph!

Neo4j 3.0.4 now at Graph Story

We just rolled out an update to deploy the newest version of Neo4j. All newly created Neo4j instances will run 3.0.4. Here are some highlights of what’s newsince the last version we deployed, 3.0.2:

  • Lots of bug fixes
  • Some Cypher performance improvements

Good stuff!

Integrating Neo4j with external JSON, XML, SQL DBs and MongoDB

The APOC plugin adds a ton of cool functionality into Neo4j, including the ability to pull and combine data from a variety of sources using Cypher. Michael Hunger made a great post on the Neo4j blog describing this functionality, as well as the cool export functionality it adds.

If you want to enable the APOC plugin on your Neo4j instance, let us know!

Hey, didn’t you want a free book about Graph Databases?

It’s your lucky day then! Trade away a small amount of privacy via your email address and get a free copy of O’Reilly’s Graph Databases book. Primarily it focuses on Neo4j, but it’s a good intro to the advantages of graphs in general.
