It has been suggested that this page be merged with Java Edition 1.7.4. [discuss]
If this merge affects many pages or may potentially be controversial, do not merge the page until a consensus is reached.
Reason: Not much content, and they don't actually play in older versions. It could easily just be mentioned on the page of 1.7.4.
