The new BGM210x and MGM210x Series 2 modules are state-of-the-art, miniaturized systems on a PCB that add 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity and robust mesh networking capabilities to any design easily and fast. BGM families support Bluetooth LE v5.1 and Bluetooth mesh. MGM families support Zigbee, Thread, Bluetooth and dynamic multiprotocol operation (Zigbee + Bluetooth).
xGM210P devices are designed and built for the needs of line-powered IoT solutions for the smart home and for commercial/industrial applications.
xGM210L devices are optimized for smart LED light bulbs.

For MGM210P Silabs Connect is not yet supported and Rail functions (RAIL_IEEE802154_Config2p4GHzRadio) is not working.
Bluetooth and Bluetooth Mesh is working. When will probably be full support for IEEE802154?
So what is essential difference between Series 1 and Series 2 Bluetooth devices? Cortex-M33 instead of Cortex M4? Is that all?
I hope Series 1 parts won't be discontinued.
Well Series 2 devices will of course be improved in other ways. The series 1 devices were very flexible to support many different applications and that had an impact on cost. Series 2 is more application focused, they have improved RF performance, cost, power consumption and differentiating features.
For this first device in series 2 the focus is security, and if you look at the PR it clearly talks about mains powered devices, so those are things like gateways and lighting applications. The current consumption is not hugely improved from series 1 but the cost is lower.
