Multiple Database support in the UI (Neo4j 4.x)
When viewing a running Neo4j 4.x DBMS, Desktop will now show the list of available databases, give the option to create new ones and remove existing ones.

Improved DBMS plugin management
The way plugins are handled has been improved and made more stable. Upgrading will now also upgrade official plugins installed for a DBMS.
Use any folder as a project folder
You can now create a project from any directory on your filesystem, for example choosing a folder under version control in your workspace. Note that we now only show the files relevant to Neo4j in the Files section of Desktop Projects, but you still have the option to view all files in your OS’s file browser.

New Desktop Manual
The first release of the new Desktop Manual is now available covering the key functionality of Desktop and providing troubleshooting guidance. Let us know if there are more topics you’d like to see it cover.
Improved offline handling
We’ve removed the user-driven offline mode setting that confused some users (and us!) when they’d forgotten it was activated. The Desktop UI now synchronises with the state of your system connection.
