Backendless 5 is an evolution of the Backendless Platform. This 5th generation of the product is built on top of the previous major version and maintains a complete backward compatibility (except for small differences described in the release notes for the individual SDKs).
Backendless Publish/Subscribe Messaging has been redesigned to support real-time messaging. This means applications will no longer poll to receive new messages. Instead, Backendless will push published messages to the subscribers.
