Is there a release schedule anywhere for DMD? Any list of tasks to be the next release? I'm only finding 5+ year old things when searching.

This is only the calendar, not the content.

For the features, the main line is DIP driven. Big changes come from this, always. Then all the regressions, critical, major, industry, compiler crashes, bugs.

There are also tendencies, usually started from News Group discussions. For example since a few days the tendency is to work on reducing the memory use. A few weeks ago it was about templates and their cost.

Tendencies are not necessarily followed by many contributors. For example since several weeks  Wlater Bright is working on replacing the internal data structures used in the back end, and almost alone. Just to highlight the fact that there can be coherant (non random) initiatives.

Then the remainings bits are indivudally driven, good willing driven, mood driven...
for example if someone finds a problem and that he can fix it by himself then he does.
