Version 4 of Backendless is getting quite close to being released in Backendless Cloud. We are in the final stages of testing and it should not take very long for you to see and experience the new version online. The initial release of 4.0 in the Cloud environment will be a Beta. We anticipate keeping 4.0 in Beta for about a month. During the Beta, you will be able to create new apps in both the 3.x (the current release) as well as the 4.0 environments. We added a nice backend version toggle so you will be able to switch between the version.
Once the 4.0 is released out of Beta, it will be the default version and all new apps will be created in version 4. If you have an app in 3.x, you will still be able to run it there.
I am very excited about version 4, it is quite an enjoyable product. I am sure you will share that opinion with me once you try it out.
Please stay tuned for more updates.
P.S. The future is Codeless.
