21 +== Virtual mode is now enabled by default and has been deprecated (can not be disabled) ==
22 +
23 +What this means is that the difference between the 2 main products ([[XE>>enterprise:Main.WebHome]] and [[XEM>>manager:Main.WebHome]]) is getting smaller and smaller.
24 +
25 +In the past, XEM differed from XE by the fact that it allowed the creation of multiple wikis (called subwikis) because it had the property ##xwiki.virtual=1## by default in xwiki.cfg, where as XE had ##xwiki.virtual=0## by default. Coupled with the [[extensions:Extension.Wiki Manager Application]] and the [[extensions:Extension.Workspace Application]] which were bundled by default, this allowed XEM to create and manage subwikis, while XE could not. This was causing confusion to users that had installed one product and later on, found out that they needed the other.
26 +
27 +To avoid confusion and to simplify our development as well, we have defaulted to a virtual mode enabled by default, allowing you to create and manage subwikis/workspaces no matter what product you have downloaded. For instance, if you have downloaded XE, you now only have to install one or two extensions ([[extensions:Extension.Wiki Manager Application]] and/or [[extensions:Extension.Workspace Application]]) using the extension manager and you are all set. Most likely we will also switch to a single product scheme in the future, making it more clear that multiwiki is part of XWiki's model.
