I'm testing out and adapting the Thingy Mesh Demo v0.1, which uses nRF SDK for Mesh v1.0.1 for my internship. I will be testing out a Thingy's Mesh network for the following few months.
Now I am wondering if it is advisable to switch to v2.2.0, for this question I would like to know the differences between the 2 versions. I have already found the changelog but I find it hard to find out the exact differences.
I hope someone can help me with this!
I would recommend to take a look at this youtube video first. In the comments, you can find the source code for the Thingy demo that uses Mesh SDK v2.2.0. The link you sent is an old version of the Thingy demo, which I would definitely not recommend using. Then, I would download the nRF Mesh app for iOS or Android. The video explains things well, but if you want a step by step tutorial, I would take a look at these pdfs below. You do not need to download the modified mesh SDK, just use the regular one (v2.2.0) & add the files from this link.
Quick comment: The Thingy demo uses a slightly modified Generic OnOff model (i.e. it is not the same as the Generic OnOff model located in the v2.2.0 mesh sdk).

Thanks for your quick answer! I will be testing this version out. Just a question in advance, would it also be possible to get this v2.2.0 example working with de nRF Connect for PC?

Do you want to provision the example via nRF Connect for PC? That is not possible atm unfortunately. What you can do instead is take a look at the serial example, as well as the interactive pyaci provisioning script. I would recommend testing with the regular light switch example first with a few 52 dev kits.
