[OS X TeX] New Pretest Versions

I just installed mactex-20140524.pkg on a mid-2011 iMac running OS X 10.9.3, where mactex-2013 was already installed.

Three questions:

(1) Should TeX Live Utility still be Version 1.17, dated Oct 29, 2013? That's all I find.

(2) When I open that app, it complains that the selected Repository is for 2013, whereas I'm using TeX Live 2014. Is there some repository to which I can point just for testing purposes (not that there would be any updates to packages yet)?

(3) Should the version of TeXShop.app be 3.36.1 still?

Issue, related to (2) above:

I tried TeXing a book and am getting some "Font not found" fatal errors that I don't get if I change back to TeX Live 2013. I presume the cause is that updmap hasn't been run yet by TeX Live Utility, since I couldn't do anything with it given the repository mismatch. 

What should I do as a work-around until such time as I can get a legitimate TeX Live 2014 repository URL and update, which causes updmap to be run automatically?

Note that my local texmf tree is ~/Library/texmf.  Hence I don't want to mess things up by entering the wrong command (updmap vs. updmap-sys) as the wrong user (me vs. su) at the command line in order to update what TeX knows about my local fonts.
