Of course it is possible, but it currently depends on native 
English-speaking site editors to a) know of the Japanese additions, and 
b) have the time to go add the new item to the English version, assuming 
c) the English-speaking editor can figure out the Japanese.

It's mainly a matter of time and energy, and yes, the announcement of 
the 1.8.4 previews should have been put up on the English version site, 
but sometimes thing slip by.  It's a volunteer world.

It's there now, though, thanks to David A. Black.
