New or Updated Collections at FamilySearch - 12-18 October 2014

I'm trying to keep up with the new and updated record collections at FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list).  As of 18 October, there were 1,839 record collections on FamilySearch (up 1 from last week, which one was it?).

Here are the new and updated collections for the week of 12 to 18 October 2014:

*  Illinois, Northern District Petitions for Naturalization, 1906-1991; Browse Images, updated 17 Oct 2014
*  South Dakota, School Records, 1879-1970; Browse Images, updated 17 Oct 2014
*  New York, Naturalization Index (Soundex), 1792-1906; Browse Images, updated 16 Oct 2014
*  New Mexico, Territorial Census, 1885; 59,040 indexed and imaged records, updated 16 Oct 2014
*  Illinois Probate Records, 1819-1988; Browse Images, updated 15 Oct 2014

*  France, Haute-Garonne, Toulouse, Censuses, 1790-1891; 138,452 indexed and imaged records, updated 15 Oct 2014
*  Argentina, Marriages, 1722-1911; 145,904 indexed records, updated 15 Oct 2014
*  Oregon, Deschute County Records, 1871-1985; Browse Images, updated 14 Oct 2014
*  Oregon, County Marriages, 1851-1975; 163,484 indexed and imaged records, updated 14 Oct 2014
*  Indonesia, Jawa Tengah, Mungkid District Court Records, 1985-2013; Browse Images, updated 14 Oct 2014

*  Australia, New South Wales, Cemetery, Military, and Church Record Transcripts, 1816-1982; Browse Images, updated 13 Oct 2014

Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell which collections are brand new and which ones are updated.  The asterisk they use is for "new or updated."  I am particularly interested in new collections, for the obvious reasons.

Each one of the collections listed above has a Research Wiki page (use the "Learn more" link).  It would be very useful if the Wiki page for each collection listed the dates for when the collection was added as a new collection and the major updates also.
