LR Classic 8.4.1

Hi, please excuse me if this question has beem asked and answered already.

I have the Photography subscription plan. I have Mac os Mojave 10.14.6.
I have had Photoshop CC 2018 v.19.1.9 and Bridge 2017 v 7.0.0.93 and LR Classic 8.4.1, with ACR 11.3 on my machine for ages.
I have recently successfully installed PS 2020 v. 21.2.4 with ACR 13.1 and Bridge 2020, v.10.1.1.166 without uninstalling the earlier version.
All seems to be working well, and Bridge now communicates much better with PS.

Now, my question is this. Which is the earliest version of LR, desktop version , that has ACR 13.1 with it?
I would like to install this so that both programmes are running the same version of ACR.
As things are at present, the changes I make in LR 8.4.1 don't always show up in PS or in the Bridge thumbnails.

But I don't want to have the latest version of LR as from what I read, the bugs have not yet been ironed out.

Thank you, I do hope you can help me with this. I don't seem to be able to find out from the Adobe website.

The earliest version of LRC that incorporates Camera Raw 13.1 is the current one: 10.1.

Oh, thank you. I was hoping v 9.4 would have it, as I think that version works well without glitches.
Not Everyone has "glitched with v10.x.. Install it on your Mojave and see if you are satisfied with the results. If no you can go back to V9.4. A V10 catalog is not readable with v9.x, so save your last v9 catalog file incase you decide to roll back.

Thank you. The last back up is a copy of the catalogue, is it? Or do I have to make an actual copy of the .lrcat file?
Thanks.

These are one and the same Adobe’s Lightroom backup is a zipped copy of the “.lrcat” file.
