I think the usual logic is that pre-releases of the next version replace the patch releases of the old one (by definition, there shouldn't be updates to 2.13.2 anyway).
Correct, but it also does not have a 'R 2.15.0 devel' (not that there
is such a thing: R-devel does not have a version number). In fact it
ncftp /pub/R/bin/windows/base > ls -l
-rw-rw-r-- 1 0 1001 40213201 Sep 30 19:18 R-2.13.2-win.exe
-rw-rw-r-- 1 0 1001 41018043 Oct 4 11:49 R-2.13.2patched-win.exe
-rw-rw-r-- 1 0 1001 47707488 Oct 2 10:45 R-2.14.0dev-win.exe
so R-2.14.0dev-win.exe would be a pretty good surrogate for R 2.14.0
alpha until that is available.
