With JDK 15 out the door, here’s a proposed schedule for JDK 16:

  2020/12/10  Rampdown Phase One
  2021/01/14  Rampdown Phase Two
  2021/02/04  Initial Release Candidate
  2021/02/18  Final Release Candidate
  2021/03/16  General Availability

The phases are defined in JEP 3 [1].

Comments on this proposal from JDK Committers and Reviewers [2] are
welcome, as are reasoned objections.  If no such objections are raised
by 23:00 UTC next Wednesday, 21 October, or if they’re raised and
satisfactorily answered, then per the JEP 2.0 process proposal [3]
this will be the schedule for JDK 16.
