We are happy to announce that Backendless 4 has been released out of Beta. It is now the default environment and all new apps are created in version 4. Now that the Beta is over we have enabled billing in version 4 and you can choose a pricing plan for your application. This can be done using the Manage > Billing section in the Backendless Console. There are four pricing plans to choose from. The details of the plans can be found on the Backendless Cloud Pricing page.
We have introduced a few changes:
- There is now a free, 14 day trial of the Cloud99 plan. If you created an app while Backendless 4 was in beta, the trial has also been enabled for it. When the trial is over, the app is switched to the Free plan.
- The “Development team” feature is now enabled for all plans, including the free one. It means you can invite other developers to your app regardless of the plan it is on.
- We have increased the “Cloud Code Deployment Size” limit for all plans. This is the cumulative size of all the code and dependencies it uses in megabytes. The new limits are 5mb for the Free, Developer and Cloud9 plans and 10mb for the Cloud99 plan.
- We have completely removed the limit for the number of push notifications in the Cloud99 plan.
We would like to thank everyone who helped us with 4.0 beta. We are very excited about the release and have a lot of very cool features in the works.
If you have an app in 3.x:
We will continue running the 3.x environment, however, we encourage you to migrate your app to 4.0. The free plan in 3.x will be available until November 1st, 2017. After then, the plan will be discontinued. Applications on the free plan in 3.x would either need to migrate to 4.0 or switch to a paid plan before November 1st.
