Wemos D1 mini - No "Wemos D1 R2 & mini" option in Arduino IDE

So, I have a Wemos D1 mini board and everything works fine, but there is a little strange thing going on. I downloaded the board managers and libraries and according to the tutorials, there should be a "Wemos D1 R2 & mini" option to select the board, like here:


But all I have is "Wemos D1 R1". I can select it and I have successfully uploaded the blink sketch, it is just strange.

Oh and an other question. Does the "CPU" frequency option changes the actual frequency of the chip? I thought it is much more complicated to change frequency, I heard that it is not possible the run the ESP8266 on 160MHz while programming it with Arduino IDE.

The ESP8266 developers changed the board name since that tutorial was written. It's now called "LOLIN(WEMOS) D1 R2 & mini".

I was selecting WeMos R1 D1 and the code was not working.
"LOLIN(WEMOS) D1 R2 & mini". did the trick

You’re welcome. I’m glad to hear it’s working now. Enjoy!
