42 -* The //Page// type extends the normal //DBList// type, and allows to select one or more documents from the current wiki
42 +The wizard currently has two steps. In the first step you can see which XWiki distribution you are running and what is its recommended default set of wiki pages (the default user interface). You should install, upgrade or downgrade the UI so that it matches the distribution version.

52 +In the second step you can upgrade the installed extensions. We group them in two categories:
51 51  
54 +* extensions that don't work with your current distribution but which have new versions available that are compatible with your current distribution. These extension require an upgrade.
