Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I need to download osm file with larger area than it is provided on the official website(www.openstreetmap.org). I know that there are several soulutions on the official website,which,however,cannot deal with the problem of how to get the data of way change times.

You can download the complete, world wide, planet file from planet.openstreetmap.org. If that is too large, you can use Osmosis to trim it down a certain area.

If the planet file is still too large for you (it will take much time to process it), you might have a look at the regional extracts provided by Geofabrik. http://download.geofabrik.de/

If the programs which you use also accept PBF files, you might be better to use the PBF format because much programs are faster reading PBF than XML.

And you can use osmosis to convert a PBF to/from OSM XML

This area is too large to be exported as OpenStreetMap XML Data. Please zoom in or select a smaller area, or use one of the sources listed below for bulk data downloads.
