But note that that article is about $(\infty, 1)$-categories.

Thanks Adeel! We were indeed lacking that reference.

While David is of course right about what he says above, on the other hand our old and woefully neglected entry ∞-category didn’t really make that clear at all, nor did it really point to (∞,1)-category.

I have now added a few paragraphs to the Idea-section at ∞-category that try to amplify that the term “$\infty$-category” is used to mean two rather different things, and that one of these meaning is discussed not in this entry, but in (∞,1)-category.

I also moved the What is…-reference to (∞,1)-category.

Nice!

1. Fixed the link to “Higher-Dimensional Categories: An Illustrated Guidebook” (now at Eugenia Cheng’s personal website, no longer at Sheffield).
