Four winged dinosaur?

>From an AP story:
Fossil hunters in China have discovered what may be one of the 
weirdest prehistoric species ever seen -- a four-winged dinosaur 
that apparently glided from tree to tree.
refers to Microraptor gui
Paleontologists were intrigued by the discovery. They have seen 
gliding dinosaurs before, but never one with feathers. And they 
have never seen a four-winged dinosaur before.

They have seen gliding dinosaurs before?  And why should the 
hind leg be considered as a wing associated with gliding?
Have I missed something here?
