     54  <para>Also, please note that texlive is released annually, and updating from the
     55  previous year to the current year is no longer supported. If for some reason
     56  you wish to keep versions for multiple years, for most things you can mount the
     57  old or new system at /opt/texlive and fix up your PATH as necessary. However
     58  doing that will not preserve any changes in <filename
