It has been suggested that this page be moved to Java Edition Infdev 20100630-2.
If this move affects many pages or may potentially be controversial, do not move the page until a consensus is reached.
Reason: There were two infdev versions and it's probably better to consider them both infdev versions (leaving a redirect for this one obviously)
When moving, be sure to use the appropriate tool instead of simply copying and pasting the page's contents, to preserve edit history.
