  • Renamed the old migration task to neo4j:legacy_migrate
  • Renamed the ENV variable to silence migrations output from silenced to MIGRATIONS_SILENCED

  • Adding explicit identity method for use in Query strings (thanks brucek / see #1159)
  • New adaptor-based API has been created for connecting to Neo4j (See the upgrade guide). Changes include:
  • The old APIs are deprecated and will be removed later.

  • New Neo4j::Core::Node and Neo4j::Core::Relationshp classes have been created to provide consistent results between adaptors. Neo4j::Core::Path has also been added
  • New API is centered around Cypher. No special methods are defined to, for example, load/create/etc... nodes/relationships
  • There is now a new API for making multiple queries in the same HTTP request
  • It is now possible to subscribe separately to events for querying in different adaptors and for HTTP requests (see the docs)
  • Schema queries (changes to indexes/constraints) happen in a separate thread for performance and reduce the complexity of the code
  • New session API does not include replacement for on_next_session_available
  • Adding a migration helper to mass relabel migrations (thanks @JustinAiken / see #1166 #1239)
  • Added support for find_or_initialize_by and first_or_initialize methods from ActiveRecord (thanks ProGM / see #1164)
  • Support for using Neo4j-provided IDs (neo_id) instead of UUID or another Ruby-provided ID. (Huge thanks to @klobuczek, see #1174)

Fixed

Changed

  • All explicit dependencies on ActiveAttr code that was not removed outright can now be found in the Neo4j::Shared namespace.
  • All type conversion uses Neo4j.rb-owned converters in the Neo4j::Shared::TypeConverters namespace. This is of particular importance where Boolean is concerned. Where explicitly using ActiveAttr::Typecasting::Boolean, use Neo4j::Shared::Boolean.
  • Neo4j::Shared::TypeConverters.converters was replaced with Neo4j::Shared::TypeConverters::CONVERTERS.
  • Error classes refactor: All errors now inherits from Neo4j::Error. All specific InvalidParameterError were replaced with a more generic Neo4j::InvalidParameterError.

Internal

  • Ran transpec and fixed error warning (thanks brucek / #1132)

  • The .match method on ActiveNode model class has changed to allow a second argument which takes on_create, on_match, and set keys. These allow you to define attribute values for the Cypher MERGE in the different cases (thanks leviwilson / see #1123)

Removed

  • All external ActiveAttr dependencies.
  • All call class methods from Type Converters. Use to_ruby instead.
  • Neo4j::ActiveNode::Labels::InvalidQueryError, since it's unused.

[6.1.12] - 05-27-2016

Fixed

  • Fix to find_in_batches (thanks to ProGM / see #1208)

[6.1.11] - 05-25-2016

[6.1.7] - 2016-02-16

Fixed

  • Bug related to creating subclassed nodes alongside rels in ActiveRel. (#1135. Thanks, brucek!)

[6.1.6] - 2016-02-03

Added

  • wait_for_connection configuration variable allows you to tell the gem to wait for up to 60 seconds for Neo4j to be available. This is useful in environments such as Docker Compose

[6.1.5] - 2016-01-28

Fixed

  • Calls to .find/.find_by_id/.find_by_ids now respect scopes and associations

[6.1.4] - 2016-01-26

Fixed

  • Model generators now respect module namespaces (thanks to michaeldelorenzo in #1119)

[6.1.3] - 2016-01-20

Fixed

  • Issue where ActiveRel.create would not work with RelatedNode (rel.from_node) instances (Thanks, djvs #1107)

[6.1.2] - 2016-01-19

Fixed

  • Issue where inspect failed outside of Rails (Thanks to louspringer, #1111)

[6.1.1] - 2016-01-01

Fixed

  • Fixed version requirement for neo4j-core in gemspec

[6.1.0] - 2016-01-01

Changed

  • When a model_class is specified on an association which is not an ActiveNode model, an error is raised
  • The model_class option on associations can no longer be a Class constant (should be a String, Symbol, nil, false, or an Array of Symbols/Strings)
  • The rel_class option on associations can no longer be a Class constant (should be a String, Symbol, or nil)
  • The from_class and to_class arguments can no longer be a Class constant (should be a String, Symbol, :any, or false)
  • ActiveNode and ActiveRel models can now be marshaled (thanks to jhoffner for the suggestion in #1093)

Fixed

  • Inheritance of properties in ActiveRel is fixed (see #1080)

Added

  • config/neo4j.yml now renders with an ERB step (thanks to mrstif via #1060)

[6.0.9] - 05-27-2016

Fixed

  • Fix to find_in_batches (thanks to ProGM / see #1208)

[6.0.8] - 03-14-2016

Fixed

  • Fixed issue where backticks weren't being added to where clauses for with_associations

[6.0.7] - 03-08-2016

Fixed

  • Issue where creating relationships via has_one association created two relationships

[6.0.6] - 01-20-2016

Fixed

  • Issue where inspect failed outside of Rails (Thanks to louspringer, #1111)

[6.0.5] - 12-29-2015

Fixed

  • If a property and a scope have the same name, a "Stack level too deep" error occurs. Fixed by removing the instance method which scopes define. Could break something, but I very much doubt anybody is using this, and if they are it's likely a bug (#1088)

[6.0.4] - 12-23-2015

Fixed

  • When a model_class is specified on an association which is not an ActiveNode model, an error is raised

[6.0.3] - 12-18-2015

Fixed

  • Fixed issue where find_or_create was prioritizing property`s default value rather than what was being passed in (Thanks to brucek via #1071)

[6.0.2] - 12-16-2015

Fixed

  • Fixed issue where association setting can't be set on initialize via #new (#1065)

[6.0.1] - 11-27-2015

Fixed

  • #with_associations should use multiple OPTIONAL MATCH clauses instead of one so that matches are independent (behavior changed in Neo4j 2.3.0) (forward ported from 5.2.15)

[6.0.0] - 11-24-2015

Fixed

  • Refactor unpersisted association logic to store objects directly on the object rather than the association proxy since different association proxies may be created at different times (see #1043)

[6.0.0.rc.4] - 11-19-2015

Fixed

  • Following a '#with' with a '#count' no longer causes issues with variables specified twice

[6.0.0.rc.3] - 11-18-2015

Fixed

  • Removed extra MATCH which occurs from proxy_as calls

[6.0.0.rc.2] - 11-17-2015

Changed

  • QueryProxy#<< and #create, when rel_class option is set, will use RelClass.create! instead of create to alert the user of failed rel creations.

[6.0.0.rc.1] - 11-13-2015

This release contains no changes since the last alpha. Below are all modifications introduced in alpha releases.

Changed

  • _classname property has been completely removed, officially dropping support for Neo4j < 2.1.5.
  • ActiveRel#creates_unique and the :unique Association option take arguments to control how the query is built. See https://github.com/neo4jrb/neo4j/pull/1038.
  • #<< and #create methods on associations now create with the rel_class when available so that validations/callbacks/defaults are all used as expected
  • Allow calling of #method= methods via model new method Hash argument
  • Remove uniqueness validation for id_property because we already have Neo4j constraints
  • Improved eager loading when no with_associations is specified (see #905)
  • Change size and length so that they match expected Ruby / ActiveRecord behavior (see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6083219/activerecord-size-vs-count and #875)
  • Refactoring around indexing and constraints in Neo4j::ActiveNode. The public interfaces are unchanged.
  • Neo4j::Shared::DeclaredPropertyManager was renamed Neo4j::Shared::DeclaredProperties. All methods referencing the old name were updated to reflect this.
  • Methods that were using Neo4j::Session#on_session_available were updated to reflect the upstream change to on_next_session_available.
  • rel_where will now use ActiveRel classes for type conversion, when possible.
  • Converters will look for a converted? method to determine whether an object is of the appropriate type for the database. This allows converters to be responsible for multiple types, if required.
  • Removed the ability to set both an exact index and unique constraint on the same property in a model. Unique constraints also provide exact indexes.
  • Deprecated all methods in ActiveRel's Query module except for those that allow finding by id.
  • Return true on successful #save! calls (Thanks to jmdeldin)

Added

  • Optional three-argument signature for ActiveRel#create and #create!, just like initialize.
  • Alternate ActiveRel init syntax: RelClass.new(from_node, to_node, args). This is optional, so giving a single hash with props with or without nodes is still possible.
  • ActiveRel create actions can now handle unpersisted nodes.
  • rel_order method for association chaining
  • Support config/neo4j.yaml
  • Look for ENV variables for Neo4j URL / path for Rails apps
  • New classes for schema operations, predictably called Neo4j::Schema::Operation and subclasses UniqueConstraintOperation and ExactIndexOperation. These provide methods to aid in the additional, removal, and presence checking of indexes and constraints.
  • A few methods were added to Neo4j::Shared::DeclaredProperties to make it easier to work with. In particular, [key] acts as a shortcut for DeclaredProperties#registered_properties.
  • Type Converters were added for String, Integer, Fixnum, BigDecimal, and Boolean to provide type conversion for these objects in QueryProxy.
  • Support for Array arguments to ActiveRel's from_class and to_class.

Fixed

  • Regression RE: properties being overwritten with their defaults on save in alpha.10.
  • Long properties in ActiveNode/ActiveRel #inspect are truncated
  • Property defaults are set initially when an instance of a model is loaded, then checked again before save to ensure valid? works.
  • QueryProxy was not converting Boolean properties correctly
  • Certain actions that were intended as once-in-the-app's-lifetime events, notably schema operations, will only occur immediately upon the first session's establishment.
  • Context now set for Model.all QueryProxy so that logs can reflect that it wasn't just a raw Cypher query

Removed

  • Railtie was removing username/password and putting them into the session options. This has been unneccessary in neo4j-core for a while now

[6.0.0.alpha.12] - 11-5-2015

Changed

  • _classname property has been completely removed, officially dropping support for Neo4j < 2.1.5.

  • The #touch method should to raise errors when unsuccessful and avoid #attributes for performance.

[5.2.12] - 10-25-2015

Fixed

  • Fix the #touch method for ActiveNode and ActiveRel

[5.2.11] - 10-18-2015

Fixed

  • Unable to give additional options as first argument to chained QueryProxy method

[5.2.10] - 10-14-2015

Fixed

  • has_one does not define _id methods if they are already defined. Also use method_defined? instead of respond_to? since it is at the class level

[5.2.9] - 09-30-2015

Fixed

  • Better error message for ActiveRel creation when from_node|to_node is not persisted

[5.2.8] - 09-30-2015

Fixed

  • Support references in model/scaffold generators

[5.2.7] - 09-25-2015

Fixed

  • Allow for association model_class to be prepended with double colons

[5.2.6] - 09-16-2015

Fixed

  • Fixed issue where caching an association causes further queries on the association to return the cached result

[5.2.5] - 09-11-2015

Fixed

  • Regression in last release caused properties to revert to default on update if not present in the properties for update

[5.2.4] - 09-11-2015

Fixed

  • Use debug log level for query logging
  • updated_at properties were not being added up update events, only updated.
  • Default values of Boolean properties were not being set when default: false
  • props_for_update was using String keys instead of Symbols, like props_for_update
  • props_for_create and props_for_update were not adding default property values to the hash.
  • ActiveNode's merge and find_or_create methods were not setting default values of declared properties when ON CREATE was triggered. The code now uses props_for_create.

[5.2.3] - 09-07-2015

Added bugfixes from 5.1.4 and 5.1.5 that were missed in earlier 5.2.x releases:

  • AssociationProxy now responds to serializable_hash so that include can be used in render json in Rails controllers
  • Fixed errors when trying to call #{association}_ids= on an unpersisted node with UUIDs or an array thereof.
  • Removed extra Cypher query to replace relationships when working with unpersisted nodes and association=.
  • Bug related to Rails reloading an app and returning nodes without first reinitializing models, resulting in CypherNodes.

[5.2.2] - 09-06-2015

Fixed

  • Fixed setting of association(_id|_ids) on .create

[5.2.1] - 09-04-2015

Fixed

  • Now possible to configure record_timestamps with rails config

[5.2.0] - 08-30-2015

Added

  • props_for_persistence, props_for_create, props_for_update instance methods for all nodes and rels. Each returns a hash with properties appropriate for sending to the database in a Cypher query to create or update an object.
  • Added record_timestamps configuration do default all ActiveNode and ActiveRel models to have created_at and updated_at timestamps (from #939, thanks @rebecca-eakins)
  • Added timestamp_type configuration to specify how timestamps should be stored (from #939, thanks @rebecca-eakins)

Changed

  • Methods related to basic node and rel persistence (save, create_model, _create_node, others) were refactored to make the processes simpler, clearer, and slightly faster.
  • Unit test directory structure was rearranged to mirror the lib directory.

[5.1.3] - 08-23-2015

Fixed

  • has_one associations are now properly cached (like has_many associations)
  • QueryProxy now responds to #to_ary. Fixes integration with ActiveModelSerializer gem

[5.1.2] - 08-20-2015

Fixed

[5.1.1] - 08-19-2015

Fixed

  • Fixed a bug where the Neo4j::Timestamps mixin was not able to be included

[5.1.0.rc.3] - 08-17-2015

Fixed

  • Associations defined in ActiveNode models will delegate unique? to the model set in rel_class. This makes it easier for the rel class to act as the single source of truth for relationship behavior.

Added

  • ActiveRel: #{related_node}_neo_id instance methods to match CypherRelationship. Works with start/from and end/to.
  • ActiveRel: type now has a new alias, rel_type. You might recognize this from the (Cypher|Embedded)Relationship class and ActiveNode association option.
  • Contributing to the gem? Rejoice, for it now supports Dotenv.

[5.1.0.rc.2] - 08-16-2015

Added

  • Ability to use #where_not method on ActiveNode / QueryProxy

[5.1.0.rc.1] - 08-14-2015

Fixed

  • Added a before_remove_const method to clear cached models when Rails reload! is called. 5.0.1 included a workaround but this appears to cut to the core of the issue. See https://github.com/neo4jrb/neo4j/pull/855.
  • To prevent errors, changing an index to constraint or constraint to index will drop the existing index/constraint before adding the new.
  • Fixed AssociationProxy#method_missing so it properly raises errors.

Added

  • Added ability to view model_class from Association class for rails_admin Neo4j adapter
  • QueryProxy where will now look for declared properties matching hash keys. When found, it will send the value through that property's type converter if the type matches the property's unconverted state.
  • Improved handling of unpersisted nodes with associations. You can now use << to create associations between unpersisted nodes. A save will cascade through unpersisted objects, creating nodes and rels along the way. See https://github.com/neo4jrb/neo4j/pull/871
  • Support formatted cypher queries for easy reading by humans via the pretty_logged_cypher_queries configuration variable
  • Ability to query for just IDs on associations
  • On QueryProxy objects you can now use an :id key in where and find_by methods to refer to the property from id_property (uuid by default)
  • Added ActiveRel.creates_unique and deprecated ActiveRel.creates_unique_rel
  • Added #inspect method to ActiveRel to show Cypher-style representation of from node, to node, and relationship type
  • Added Neo4j::Timestamps, Neo4j::Timestamps::Created, and Neo4j::Timestamps::Updated mixins to add timestamp properties to ActiveNode or ActiveRel classes

Changed

  • Methods related to ActiveNode's IdProperty module were refactored to improve performance and simplify the API. Existing default_properties methods were reworked to reflect their use as-implemented: storage for a single default property, not multiple.
  • Implementation adjustments that improve node and rel initialization speed, particularly when loading large numbers of objects from the database.

[5.0.15] - 08-12-2015

Fixed

  • reload! within Rails apps will work correctly. An earlier release included a workaround but this uses ActiveModel's system for clearing caches to provide a more thorough resolution.

[5.0.14] - 08-09-2015

Fixed

  • Calling all on a QueryProxy chain would cause the currently set node identity within Cypher to be lost.

[5.0.13] - 08-07-2015

Fixed

  • Backport AssociationProxy#method_missing fix to raise errors on invalid methods
  • Fix the count issue on depth two associations (#881)

[5.0.12] - ?

Fixed

  • Break between associations so that potential where clauses get applied to the correct (OPTIONAL )MATCH clause

Fixed

  • Delegate first and last from AssociationProxy to QueryProxy
  • Fix order behavior for first and last in QueryProxy

[5.0.11] - ?

Fixed

  • Delegate first and last from AssociationProxy to QueryProxy
  • Fix order behavior for first and last in QueryProxy

[5.0.10] - 2015-07-31

Fixed

  • Fix what should have been a very obvious bug in _active_record_destroyed_behavior behavior
  • Add eager loading to QueryProxy so that it works in all expected places

[5.0.9] - 2015-07-29

Fixed

[5.0.8] - 2015-07-26

Changed

  • Copied QueryClauseMethods doc from master

[5.0.7] - 2015-07-26

Changed

  • Copied docs folder from master because a lot of work had gone into the docs since 5.0.0 was released

[5.0.6] - 2015-07-22

Fixed

  • Fix query logging so that by default it only outputs to the user in the console and development server. Logger can be changed with neo4j.config.logger configuration option

[5.0.5] - 2015-07-19

Added

  • Added log_cypher_queries configuration option so that queries aren't on by default but that they can be controlled

[5.0.4] - 2015-07-17

Fixed

  • Fixed bug which caused QueryProxy context to repeat (showed up in query logging)

[5.0.3] - 2015-07-14

Changed

  • Moved #with_associations method from AssociationProxy to QueryProxy so that all QueryProxy chains can benefit from it.
  • Added _active_record_destroyed_behavior semi-hidden configuration variable so that behavior for ActiveNode#destroyed? and ActiveRel#destroyed? can be changed to upcoming 6.0.0 behavior (matching ActiveRecord) where the database is not accessed.

[5.0.2] - 2015-06-30

Fixed

  • Fix error when calling #empty? or #blank? on a query chain with on order specified
  • Make #find_each and #find_in_batches return the actual objects rather than the result objects
  • Query logging on console should be to STDOUT with puts. Using Rails.logger outputs to the file in the log directory
  • Modified queryproxy include? to accept a uuid instead of full node

[5.0.1] - 2015-06-23

Fixed

  • Longstanding bug that would prevent association changes (<< and ActiveRel.create) in Rails after reload! had been called, see https://github.com/neo4jrb/neo4j/pull/839
  • ActiveNode#inspect wasn't displaying the id_property
  • Default property values and magic typecasting not being inherited correctly

Changed

  • In the absense of a model_class key, associations defined in ActiveNode models will use from_/to_class defined in rel_class to find destination. (Huge thanks to @olance, #838)
  • ActiveRel's DSL was made a bit friendlier by making the type, from_class and to_class methods return their set values when called without arguments.
  • Reworked ActiveRel's wrapper to behave more like ActiveNode's, removing some duplicate methods and moving others to Neo4j::Shared, resulting in a big performance boost when returning large numbers of rels.
  • Updated gemspec to require neo4j-core 5.0.1+

Added

  • ActiveRel was given find_or_create_by, usable across single associations.

[5.0.0] - 2015-06-18

Fixed

Added

  • QueryProxy associations accept labels: false option to prevent generated Cypher from using labels.

Changed

  • Properties explicitly set to type Time will no longer be converted to DateTime.

[5.0.0.rc.3] - 2015-06-07

Fixed

  • Associations now allow unique option. Error handling is generalized to make this testable (Thanks to @olance, see #824)

[5.0.0.rc.2] - 2015-05-20

Changed

  • Set Ruby version requirement back to 1.9.3 because of problems with JRuby

[5.0.0.rc.1] - 2015-05-20

Changed

  • Ruby 2.0.0 now required (>= 2.2.1 is recommended)
  • All ActiveNode associations now require either a type, origin, or rel_class option. Only one is allowed
  • Defining associations will fail if unknown options are used (#796)
  • Model#find fails if no node found (Model#find_by available when nil result desired) (#799)
  • #find_or_create and #merge model class methods have been added
  • Ensuring that all model callbacks are happening within transactions
  • Major refactoring using rubocop with a lot of focus on speed improvements
  • Specifically when loading many nodes at once we've measured 3x speed improvements

Fixed

  • #find on QueryProxy objects now does a model find rather than an Enumerable find
  • Subclassed model classes now both create and query against it's ancestor's labels in addition to it's own (#690)
  • #first and #last now work property when precedend by an #order in a QueryProxy chain (#720)
  • #count when called after #limit will be performed within the bounds of limit specified

Added

  • Eager Loading is now supported! See: [http://neo4jrb.readthedocs.org/en/latest/ActiveNode.html#eager-loading]
  • Associations now return AssociationProxy objects (which are Enumerable) which have convenient #inspect methods for cleaner viewing in the Ruby console
  • model_class key on associations now supports an Array (#589)
  • When using all inside of a class method an argument for the node name can now be passed in (#737)
  • Query(Proxy) syntax of where("foo = ?", val) and where("foo = {bar}", bar: val) now supported (#675)
  • module_handling config option now available to control how class module namespaces translate to Neo4j labels (#753) (See: [http://neo4jrb.readthedocs.org/en/latest/Configuration.html])
  • #id_property method has new constraints option to disable automatic uuid constraint (#738/#736)

(There are probably other changes too!)

Changes above this point should conform to [http://keepachangelog.com/]

[4.1.2]

  • Fixes two bugs related to inheritance: one regarding ActiveRel classes and relationship types, the other regarding ActiveNode primary_key properties not being set when a model is loaded prior to Neo4j session.

[4.1.1]

  • Switches use of Fixnum to Integer to improve 32-bit support

[4.1.0]

This release includes many performance fixes and new features. The most notable:

[4.0.0]

  • Change neo4j-core dependency from 3.1.0 to 4.0.0.

[4.0.0.rc.4]

  • _classname property is disabled by default for ActiveRel! It had been disabled for ActiveNode, this just evens the score.
  • Fixes a bug to create better result labels in Cypher.
  • Made the delete_all and destroy_all ActiveNode class methods consistent with their ActiveRecord counterparts. destroy_all previously performed its deletes in Cypher but it should have been returning nodes to Ruby and calling destroy. delete_all didn't exist at all.

[4.0.0.rc.3]

Released minutes after rc.2 to catch one late addition!

  • Adds serialization support for QueryProxy.

[4.0.0.rc.2]

This release builds on features introduced in the first RC. We are releasing this as another RC because the API may be tweaked before release.

  • New proxy_as for Core::Query to build QueryProxy chains onto Core::Query objects!
  • Using proxy_as, new optional method in QueryProxy to use the OPTIONAL MATCH Cypher function.
  • match_to and methods that depend on it now support arrays of nodes or IDs.
  • New rels_to/all_rels_to methods.
  • New delete and destroy methods in QueryProxy to easily remove relationships.
  • Serialized objects will include IDs by default.

[4.0.0.rc.1]

This release introduces API changes that may be considered breaking under certain conditions. See See https://github.com/neo4jrb/neo4j/wiki/Neo4j.rb-v4-Introduction. Please use https://github.com/neo4jrb/neo4j/issues for support regarding this update! You can also reach us on Twitter: @neo4jrb (Brian) and @subvertallmedia (Chris).

  • Default behavior changed: relationship types default to all caps, no prepending of "#". This behavior can be changed.
  • ActiveRel models no longer require explicit calling of type. When missing, the model will infer a type using the class name following the same rules used to determine automatic relationship types from ActiveNode models.
  • _classname properties will not be added automatically if you are using a version Neo4j >= 2.1.5. Instead, models are found using labels or relationship type. This is a potentially breaking change, particularly where ActiveRel is concerned. See the link at the beginning of this message for the steps required to work around this.
  • Query scopes are now chainable! Call all at the start of your scope or method to take advantage of this.
  • Changes required for Neo4j 2.2.
  • Support for custom typecasters.
  • New method rel_where, expanded behavior of match_to and first_rel_to
  • Implemented ActiveSupport load hooks.
  • Assorted performance improvements and refactoring.

[3.0.4]
