We're happy to let you know that Bloom 2.2.0 is now available in Aura.
The latest release of Bloom includes a new way to customize graph interactions, Scene Actions, as well as improvements to applying captions to nodes and relationships.
Captions can now be customized via the 'Text' tab of the styling window in the legend panel.
We look forward to hearing your feedback.
We're pleased to let you know that you can now pause any AuraDB Professional instances when you are not actively using them.
Paused instances will be charged at 20% of the running cost.
We'll auto resume instances that have been paused for 30 days, to ensure we update them to the latest and greatest Neo4j database version.
At which point you'll be charged the running cost, but you can pause them again if you want.
You'll find the pause button on the main database card.
This feature facilitates cost management, you can pause database instances you only need for demos, development or that you only need running during working hours.
As always, we're keen to hear your feedback, so let us know how you get on.

We're pleased to announce the launch of Neo4j Data Importer, a new no-code tool for loading data into your database.
Simply provide your flat files, sketch out your desired graph model, map your data to it and you’re ready to load.
Watch the tutorial video to get a quick overview and run through an example.
When you’re ready to try it yourself, simply launch data importer from your instance’s “Open with” menu and start trying it with your own data.
Don’t forget to have your instance credentials handy, you’ll need them to run the load.
Leave us any feedback you may have over on data importer’s feedback site.
We will be carrying out an upgrade to infrastructure that delivers Bloom in Aura on Saturday the 5th of February 2022 between 9am and 1pm GMT.
During this window you will not be able to access Bloom via the "Open with" button, there is no impact to the database or Browser.
If after the work is complete you notice any issues when connecting to a database with Bloom, please don't hesitate to contact us.
