IPv6 support coming soon
Neon will soon start accepting IPv6 connections at no extra charge. We will keep supporting IPv4 connections, also at no extra charge.
We'll progressively roll out IPv6 to all our supported regions throughout February. You shouldn’t experience any downtime or disturbances: if your host is IPv6 enabled and its client library prefers IPv6 by default, your new connections will start using it. No action is required from you.
If you have any questions, reach out to us in Discord.
Support for prepared statements with PgBouncer
The PgBouncer version used by Neon to offer pooled connection support was updated to version 1.22.0. This version of PgBouncer adds support for
DEALLOCATE ALL and
DISCARD ALL in
transaction mode. In Neon, the new version of PgBouncer enables support for protocol-level prepared statements.
Support for protocol-level prepared statements with PgBouncer means you can now use prepared statements with pooled connections. Using prepared statements can help boost query performance while providing an added layer of protection against potential SQL injection attacks. To learn more, see Optimize queries with PgBouncer and prepared statements.
Fixes & improvements
- For logical replication,
CREATE PUBLICATION my_publication FOR ALL TABLESsyntax is now supported in Neon. Previously,
FOR ALL TABLESwas not supported, and multiple tables could only be specified using
CREATE PUBLICATION my_pub FOR TABLE <table1>, <table2>syntax.
- The Branch selector in the Connection Details widget on the Neon Dashboard now has a Create new branch option.
- The Quickstart banner that appears at the top of the Neon Dashboard for newly created projects now includes commands for creating and listing branches using the Neon CLI.
- Added a Save changes button to the Vercel integration drawer on the Integrations page for Vercel environment variable changes. Previously, changes were saved implicitly without confirmation.
- Corrected the globe coordinates for a supported region on the Project creation page in the Neon console.
- Updated the documentation link on the Developer Settings page (accessed from your account Profile) to link to the Neon API documentation instead of the Neon documentation landing page.
- Removed the requirement to specify a
--project-idvalue when issuing a Neon CLI ip-allow command when there is only a single Neon project in your Neon account. The option is now only required if you have multiple Neon projects.
