Difference between W=U*Q and W = MixedFunctionSpace([U,Q])

6 months ago by
I am using a code that was written in FEniCS stable 1.6.0. Since i have a copy the older version of FEniCS install on my laptop hence i prefered using the code as it is.
The code uses syntax W = U*Q where as at another place the same code uses W = MixedFunctionSpace([U,V,Q]).

Are the two just different ways to specify a mixed function space or they have different meanings for the compiler ?
Can i use W= MixedFunctionSpace([U,Q]) instead of W = U*Q ?

Would be thankful for guidance from the community.
