When I open up Minecraft launcher (PC), it reads that I am playing on the latest release (1.13.2). However I see multiple questions on Arqade about Minecraft 1.14. Even with "Enable SnapShots" and "Historical Versions" enabled, I cannot see a "1.14" Version.

Can someone help me with this?

    May I know why this is downvoted? I honestly hate it when people downvote, without any reason or without stating why they did so. Please state why you did so. – GamerM Feb 4 '19 at 22:54

    @Frank You still haven't stated why this question is downvoted. – GamerM Feb 4 '19 at 23:48

    @Frank So your telling me you can downvote any question you want for no apparent reason? – GamerM Feb 5 '19 at 2:52

    Generally, you should downvote because you believe the post doesn't meet your quality standards, but no matter how you vote, you don't have to justify it. Not to the poster, not to others, not to anyone. – Frank Feb 5 '19 at 2:57

    It's irritating that people often don't provide a reason for downvotes, but it happens all over and isn't a requirement. Just be a good soul yourself and provide comments when voting. I always do. – Stese Feb 5 '19 at 10:03

The development versions of the Java Edition are called "snapshots", and have a versioning format like "19w05a", which states the year (19), week number (05) and weekly identifier (a). In the example case (19w05a), the snapshot is first (a) snapshot of week 05 in 2019.

So, to play Java Edition 1.14 development versions, you need to first enable snapshots from the launcher settings and play profile "Latest Snapshot".

    And to add, an official 1.14 isn't out yet. The snapshots are more of a preview or work-in-progress of 1.14 (or whatever preceding version). – aytimothy Feb 5 '19 at 11:27
  • Ahh. I saw a 19w05a, but i was confused to what it meant. – GamerM Feb 5 '19 at 21:41

Windows 10 version is available, not java.

  • Ahh I see. Do you perhaps know if it will be available for Java Edition in the future? – GamerM Feb 4 '19 at 22:46

    This is not a valid answer, for various reasons: 1. Windows 10 edition isn't even close to the version number 1.13, it's currently at 1.10 at most. 2. This question is about the Java edition, as stated by the tag. 3. Even if this was about BE, it wouldn't answer anything. What does that sentence even mean? – Fabian Röling Feb 5 '19 at 8:56
  • @A nice duck : This answer is simply incorrect, and has no source for verification purposes. I've downvoted it due to this. please provide correct information, or delete the post. – Stese Feb 5 '19 at 10:02
