Version 4.4

Release date: 2019-04-04

This release contains a number of new features and fixes reported since the release of pgAdmin4 4.3.


This release includes a bug fix (Issue #3887) which will rename the per-user storage directories for existing users when running in server mode. Previously, saved SQL queries were stored under the STORAGE_DIR in a sub-directory named after the username part of the user’s email address. From this version onwards, the full email address is used, with the @ replaced with an underscore. For example, in v.4.3 with STORAGE_DIR set to /var/lib/pgadmin4 user files may be stored in:


With the fix, that directory will be renamed (or created for new users) as:



Issue #2001 - Add support for reverse proxied setups with Gunicorn, and document Gunicorn, uWSGI & NGINX configurations.

Issue #4018 - Remove the large and unnecessary dependency on React and 87 other related libraries.
