Developers and network maintainers might want to check out our blog post
on significant backwards-imcompatible changes in the R1 release:

In summary:
* Mesh IP addresses are now self-assigned in the range and
all client subnets are bridged and assigned addresses in the
* default adhoc SSID and channel were removed
* adhoc BSSID is now deterministically generated based on hash of SSID
and channel

The blog post explains the details and reasoning behind these changes,
for those that are interested, and also includes info on upgrading
pre-R1 Commotion networks.
