This is fullest info I found , albeit no updates since launch.
Landing accuracy has to be more precise than Chang'e 3.

Interesting item on the CE4 upper stage, detected in an asteroid survey, with a comment on its post-lunar flyby orbit.

Good article from The Planetary Society on this milestone and anticipated future events.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

A bit of concern here - let's hope all is well.

Apparently the spacecraft is okay? Just not in the orbit we all assumed it would be in.
