Tharso, a few of us asked for this change because it makes more sense to be able to move items by default in new scenes.
You have a few options:
* select all your meshes and disable mesh > "live geometry update"
* Change preferences > rendering > octane > default live geometry update = OFF, and restart modo
* I havent tested this, but in the octane viewport, press the "no live geometry" button. This gets saved to a channel, and will be remembered per scene

Did you actually test this out in the new build?
