Use Neon as your dev environment for AWS RDS: accelerate your workflow while reducing costs


The latest product updates from Neon

History retention and point-in-time restore

You can now configure the history retention period for a Neon project. History retention enables point-in-time restore, allowing you to restore data to any point within the retention period. By default, Neon retains a 7-day history of data changes for all branches. The supported history retention range is 0 to 7 days for Free Tier users, and 0 to 30 days for Pro plan users.

The History retention setting is located in the Neon Console under Project settings > Storage. History retention configuration

Configurable Autosuspend

After an extensive testing period, we are pleased to announce that our Configurable autosuspend feature has successfully transitioned out of Beta. This feature controls when a Neon compute instance scales to zero due to inactivity. For more information, see Configuring Autosuspend for Neon computes.

Fixes & improvements

  • API: The Create branch API method now creates a branch from the project's default branch if a parent_id is not provided in the create branch request.

  • API: Deprecated the pooler_enabled attribute in the Create endpoint API method. This attribute is no longer required, as you can now enable connection pooling by adding a -pooler flag to a database connection string. See How to use connection pooling.

  • UI: The Compute widget on the Neon Dashboard now displays the Active computes limit for your Neon project. There is a default limit of 20 simultaneously active computes to protect Neon accounts from unintended or unexpected usage. Neon Pro plan users can have the limit increased by submitting a request to our support team.

  • UI: Fixed an issue on the Downgrade dialog accessible from the Neon Pro plan Billing page that prevented selecting a reason for downgrading.

  • UI: Fixed dark theme styling issues.
