I installed texlive on 11 Aug ,2017, and I accidentally updated the xeCJK package to the latest edition yesterday, now I need a xeCJK package that matches my version, could you please send me a link to download the historical version of the package? Many thanks!

  • What was your version and what is it now? – AndréC Jan 3 at 7:37
  • The CTAN page gives links to the home page of the package as well as to its GitHub repository. – AndréC Jan 3 at 7:53
  • Texlive has a backup system. If you didn't deactivate it you should be able to return to the previously installed version with tlmgr. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 3 at 8:09
  • @AndréC Time: 2017/08/11 and 2018/04/30. – gcfsjfcus Jan 3 at 8:27
