The top-requested item of many users is now reality: you can mark any category on your wiki as hidden to the public, or less privileged members. This lets admins and members plot in secret without having to create separate private sites.

How to create a private category. As example, 'drafts'. Create a page 'drafts:_template' with this content:

//This is a draft page, visible to members only.  When you want to publish it, use the Rename action to change to another category.//


Then go to your site manager and find the Permissions page. Then click the Draft category and uncheck the "Inherit from _default" option if it's selected. Then remove the View permissions for anonymous and registered users, leaving only members and creators.
