- enhancements to the performance statistics using key performance indicators (KPI);
- "Stale Data" detection was added (see services Read stale data setpoints, Write stale data timer and Write stale data count setpoint).;
- gateway commands were added;
- a Quarantined State was added;
- CCA Modes were extended to be more in-line with IEEE 802.15.4;
- clarifications on whitelist and blacklist management were added;
- clarifications on join (e.g. only require a single neighbor) were added;
- clarifications on use of join links, table management, and defaults were added;
