  Lots.  There's a lot to do, but it's making good progress.

  The main challenge is time.

  The changes are sweeping.  While the configuration files look largely similar, almost everything has changed under the hood.

  Things which used to be impossible are now trivial.  But some simple things have unfortunately gotten more complex.

  The main thing is that the requests are now fully asynchronous.  The interpreter has it's own scheduler, and each request has it's own interpreter stack.  The result is that the server needs fewer threads to actually run things.

  See the Wiki page above.

  What does that mean?

  Lots and lots.  The best thing here is to watch the git log.

  Perhaps a better question is this: What are you looking for?

  i.e. if you just want to know about v4, download it and look.  On the other hand, if you're looking for a particular feature, then it's best to ask about that.
