Joomla 4 is making progress with Alpha releases every month or so.
The latest version of Joomla 4 is Alpha 11. You can read the release announcement here.
The major change in this version is that there's a new admin template! This has been a long process and we're delighted for the Joomla team that the template is ready. We first wrote about the new admin template in 2017 and then again in 2018. The Joomla team have been slowly improving and tweaking the template for at least two years.
Here's our video introducing the Joomla 4 admin template. This video is one of many on Joomlashack's YouTube channel.
More about Joomla 4
We've been writing about Joomla 4 for some time now. If you're new to Joomla 4, I'd recommend our post about how the future of Joomla 4 is CSS Grid, not Bootstrap. Also useful are posts on the new search extension and the new workflows feature.

When will Joomla 4 be released?
This question is inevitable, so we'll do our best to answer it. This is what the Joomla teams says:
We would like to remind our users that Joomla 4.0 stable is not expected before the end of 2019. At present we are intending Joomla 4.0 Alpha 12 to be the last alpha of Joomla 4 and to present Joomla 4 Beta 1 in early October 2019.
