LionWiki contains only basic functionality, more advanced features are provided by plugins.

It's important to note that supplied plugins may be of lower quality than core LionWiki. It's because number of plugins grow with each release and it's quite hard to do serious testing of each of them against every release. However, all supplied plugins are supported, that means that after filing a bug into forum, fix should be available soon.
