15 -<description of feature N>
15 +It's now possible to create wiki pages inside other wiki pages. More specifically we've decided to drop the concept of Space in the UI (it's still there at the API/platform level) and instead, to replace it with the concept of Nested Pages.
16 16  
17 +We've also decided to drop the concept of Parent/Child relationship since it was too complex for end users to have 2 hierarchies: the Space/Page hierarchy and the Parent/Child hierarchy. The Parent/Child hierarchy also had limitations: you couldn't inherit page permissions for example. Thus the idea is to have a single hierarchy based on Nested Pages.
18 +
19 +Advantages of Nested Pages:
20 +
21 +* The URL reflects the page hierarchy
22 +* Finer-grained control: Ability to set permissions at each level
23 +* Generally speaking, a nicer and simpler way to organize your content hierarchically
24 +* Moving and Deleting pages updates the hierarchy
25 +
26 +Terminology:
27 +
28 +* **Nested Page** (a.k.a **Non-Terminal Page**): This is a wiki page that can have children pages. Technically a Nested Page is implemented as a Nested Space (i.e. a **WebHome** page).
29 +* **Non-Nested Page** (a.k.a **Terminal Page**): This a wiki page that cannot have children pages. Applications and script can create Terminal Pages. Advanced Users will also be able to create Terminal Pages from the UI. Standard Users will only be able to create Nested Pages.
30 +* **Nested Space**: A Space which has another Space as parent. As mentioned above, a Nested Page is technically implemented as a Nested Space. You will used the term Nested Space when speaking technically about XWiki APIs for example but when talking about UI you should favor using the term Nested Page instead.
