Here’s the proposed schedule for JDK 21:

  2023/06/08  Rampdown Phase One
  2023/07/20  Rampdown Phase Two
  2023/08/10  Initial Release Candidate
  2023/08/24  Final Release Candidate
  2023/09/19  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 Monday, 3 April, or if they’re raised and then
satisfactorily answered, then per the JEP 2.0 process proposal [3]
this will be the schedule for JDK 20.
