We have introduced two new radio configurations and renamed others to make naming more consistent. While our change should be transparent and backward compatible, it may be confusing if you use different versions.
The new radio configurations are the “Medium Range” set. This would give only slightly reduced range compared to the “Long Rage” but a much improved user experience and network capacity. Those new configurations are also there to support higher bandwidth use cases that have been in discussion.

If you do try them out and would like to share your results, I’ve made a google spreadsheet that everyone can edit. Would really appreciate any testing for these you’d be able to share.
