As of November 6th (the farthest) I know how to look back date wise of updates/new collection shows 81 collections have been added/updated.  I am sure there is a way to see all the updates that have happened over the course of 2013.  

Once again if anyone knows where to look please post it in the comments.  It would be interesting to see the comparison between FamilySearch and Ancestry on how many collections for 2013 were updated/new for each.
