What is the state of the Windows version anyway? The last time I tried it it was way, way behind the java version in regards to features.
The main thing that the Windows 10 version doesn't have now is the recipes or the parrots. It has the new concrete and terracotta blocks though. It also finally has all the gamerules implemented, which is why I'm playing it now. I get traumatized when I lose all my stuff so I always want keepinventory on.

More news:

The Better Together patch (the one that adds cross platform) will be launched in August. At that time, the Cross Platform version will also have recipes and presumably parrots, making it feature complete with the PC edition. The PC edition will be renamed the Java edition which is what people call it anyway. Mojang is working on Java version 1.13 but I haven't found what's planned to be in it.

Try these suggestions. Make sure you have a Mojang account and not a Minecraft account.

I think I have an unused code somewhere. I'll pm it.

Edit: not finding it sadly.

That looks like you may not have converted your account, just created a new one? Maybe? what happens if you try to import?

Minecraft's better together update is rolling out now. From the wiki, here are the details of the update.

Do keep in mind that in the future the Java Minecraft will be called just that, Java Minecraft. Minecraft is now what I linked to above.
