Which are the preferred LoRa modules now?
I notice that Semtech has a new chip, the SX1262, which I presume supplants the older chips that preceeded it. A quick look at the specs and it appeaars to cover the entire <1ghz band, and use a lot less current when the power amplifier is invoked. That said, I haven't yet tried it.
@neverdie iirc, they are also more sensitive on rx (can decode weaker signals). So unless the price difference is very high, get the new ones.

Are these RFM95 compatible (software wise), or do they need a different library?
@mfalkvidd Connfirmed. Looks as though Tx and Rx have both increased by 2dbm, yielding an improvement in link budget of 4dbm.
And rx current on the sx1262 is much less in DC-DC mode that the earlier sx1276/1278. It also makes available a faster datarate: http://www.ebyte.com/en/new-view-info.aspx?id=303
