New features include the ability to search the visible graph to center a specific vertex, as well as by Start node. New functionality for ArangoSearch has also been added to ArangoDB’s web interface, including a search-alias View to create and manage search views, the ability to create inverted indexes on collections, as well as a new sorting mechanism and search box for Saved Queries to make it simpler to find relevant queries and discover which ones have been created or used recently.
