Created my survival world pre-1.0, villagers won't spawn

Anytime I gen a new village it's abandoned. All the usual structures are there, but no villagers to be seen anywhere. I found one village literally minutes from my spawn, and gen'd another yesterday, just beyond the western edge of my map. Both are empty except for random livestock.

Did pre-1.0 even have Villagers? I don't remember. I think 1.0 added villagers. Only because 1.8 added villages.

Yes 1.8 only had villages not villagers because notch said he hadn't finished with the villagers. Apparently not finished means taking a month making a npc that doesn't do anything. I at least though he was making the AI good so we could trade or they would fight other mobs or something (I'm pretty sure that was he excuse he didn't release them he was working on the AI)

Took a month to copy over pig AI, sounds about right

Jeb was in charge of villages and villagers, not Notch. And the excuse was that Nether content took priority over NPCs.

This. Plus they hired an AI specialist after that, so there's really no reason to complain now. They're working on it.
