From the developer:
Compared to other wikis, it has an excellent range of features and support for high-traffic websites using multiple servers (Wikimedia sites peak in the 50000+ requests per second range as of January 2008).While quite usable on smaller sites, you may find you have to "roll your own" local documentation.
MediaWiki is using a "continuous integration" development model with quarterly snapshot releases. The latest development code is always kept "ready to run", and in fact runs our own sites on Wikipedia.
