New Features in This Engine Release

Improvements in This Engine Release

  • Optimized some Gremlin conditional insert patterns to avoid concurrent-modification exceptions.

Defects Fixed in This Engine Release

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug that could cause missing results for a specific pattern of queries that used the as() step.

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug that could cause errors when using the project() step nested inside another step such as union().

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug in the project() step.

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug in string-based traversal where the none() step did not work.

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug in string-based traversal where an empty map was not supported as an arguent to the inject() step.

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug in string-based traversal execution in the DFE engine where a terminal method such as toList() did not work properly.

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug that failed to close transactions which used the iterate() step in String queries.

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug that could cause queries using the is(P.gte(0)) pattern to throw an exception in some situations.

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug that could cause queries using the order().by(T.id) pattern to throw an exception in some situations.

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug that could cause queries using the addV().aggregate() pattern to give incorrect results in some situations.

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug that could cause queries using the path() step followed by the project() step pattern to throw an exception in some situations.

  • Fixed a SPARQL bug where the SUBSTR function signals an error instead of returning an empty string.

  • Fixed a bug in the DFE engine that could cause join operations in non-blocking query plans to generate incorrect results in the presence of unbound variables.

Query-Language Versions Supported in This Release

Before upgrading a DB cluster to version 1.0.4.1, make sure that your project is compatible with these query-language versions:

  • Gremlin version: 3.4.8

  • SPARQL version: 1.1

Upgrade Paths to Engine Release 1.0.4.1

You can manually upgrade any previous Neptune engine release to this release.

You will not automatically upgrade to this release.

Upgrading to This Release

Amazon Neptune 1.0.4.1 is now generally available.

If a DB cluster is running an engine version from which there is an upgrade path to this release, it is eligible to be upgraded now. You can upgrade any eligible cluster using the DB cluster operations on the console or by using the SDK. The following CLI command will upgrade an eligible cluster immediately:

For Linux, OS X, or Unix:

aws neptune modify-db-cluster \ --db-cluster-identifier <your-neptune-cluster> \ --engine-version 1.0.4.1 \ --apply-immediately

For Windows:

aws neptune modify-db-cluster ^ --db-cluster-identifier <your-neptune-cluster> ^ --engine-version 1.0.4.1 ^ --apply-immediately

Updates are applied to all instances in a DB cluster simultaneously. An update requires a database restart on those instances, so you will experience downtime ranging from 20–30 seconds to several minutes, after which you can resume using the DB cluster.

For more information about upgrading your engine version, see Neptune Engine Updates. If you have any questions or concerns, the AWS Support team is available on the community forums and through AWS Premium Support.
