This article has a section on 'editions' (SE, ME, etc). But nothing on the differences between versions. Java 1.7 (and 1.8, though not yet finalized) is in some ways quite a different languages from 1.0. Does anyone think there ought to be a 'Versions' section with brief notes on the main changes (or perhaps just the language changes) in each version? These could include links to information on the relevant topic elsewhere on WP.

The access level modifier example have one value missing. And, it'll also be better if we provide the official link of the access level details for the four types.

Not done for now: default is at least mentioned at List of Java keywords. It's unclear whether the passage here needs to be comprehensive about the modifiers. The passage currently says, Other access level modifiers include the keywords private and protected, which suggests that not everything is covered. If you're still suggesting the change, re-phrase your request here in a "Change X to Y" format and re-open the request (change answered=no) — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 14:26, 10 August 2016 (UTC)
