Postgres extension update for plv8

We updated the plv8 extension to version 3.1.10. If you installed this extension previously and want to upgrade to the latest version, please refer to Update an extension version for instructions.

plv8 is a Javascript language extension for Postgres. To learn more, refer to the PLV8 documentation. For a list of all Postgres extensions supported by Neon, see Supported Postgres extensions.

Vercel integration enhancements

The following updates were made to the Neon Vercel Integration:

  • Preview deployment branches are now created from the primary branch of your Neon project. Previously, the integration created branches from the root branch of your Neon project, which is designated as your project's primary branch by default. Neon lets you change your primary branch. If you have an older version of the integration and you want branches created from your project's primary branch instead of root, reinstall the integration from the Vercel Marketplace.
  • The integration now appends the sslmode=require option to the Neon connection string that it sets for the DATABASE_URL environment variable in Vercel.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented using the integration with more than one Vercel project.
  • Fixed an issue that set the DATABASE_URL variable in the Vercel project settings to a pooled Neon database connection string instead of a direct database connection string.

Fixes & improvements

  • Free Tier users with access to a project shared by a Neon Pro Plan account can now submit support requests via the Support link in the Neon Console sidebar.
  • Fixed an issue that caused shared projects to be displayed under Projects instead of Shared with me on the Projects page in the Neon Console.
  • The Edit compute modal, accessed via the Branches page in the Neon Console, was reimplemented as a side drawer.
