    Thanks for the update.
    Did you notice a big difference? Brightness and heat?

    For now the 650Hz PWM on output levels below about 15 mA is a necessary compromise that is admittedly not ideal but still an improvement over the current 3S drivers IMHO.

    The default output currents of the new driver are going to be 12 - 114 - 391 - 1000 mA. You can set the maximum to 1200 mA through the setup and set the lowest to about 3 ... 6 mA as i had outlined above.
    At the 1000ma or 1200ma level, will the driver require a 4.2volt battery or will it run on a primary at the higher levels? What is the drive limit on a primary?

    The default 1000 mA output are possible on a fresh primary cell, i. e. at cell voltages >= 3.0 V. As the cell voltage goes down during discharge the output will decrease a little, but not significantly. For 1200 mA you will need a rechargeable Li-Ion however. At any rate, rechargeables are the better choice in terms of output and overall efficiency.

    Is there a way to configure the HIVE for single mode operation?

    Yes
