2013.4.0.0 was completely skipped. The next normal release would be
2014.2.0.0 by recent timing (the slots for the others are reserved but not
generally used); beyond that you probably want to ask for something
official (and for them to make a public announcement...) on the
libraries at haskell.org list.

(Also please note, I am not involved with the libraries or HP process, I'm
just relaying what I recall reading. Check libraries at haskell.org archives
or ask there for the real story.)
