Overall it looks good!  For screenshots you have to attach the screenshot
to the page using the Attach button in the top right corner.  Then when
you click the insert image button in the WYSIWYG editor you can select the
attached image from a drop down list.

Honestly, neither do I. :-P  Out of the various Wiki options available
this one is still the best choice, but it has numerous weak points. 
Another weak area (besides the editor and overall UI busyness) is the
"Webs" concept; it is somewhat confusing and clunky to most people.

3.5.11; it is not listed on that release notes page because I forgot about
it.  kinfocenter has basically been retired, as splitting configuration
modules across two separate programs just makes it harder for the users to
find a specific module.  One central location for all system information
and configuration seems to make more sense.
