It's a bit premature to lay out a 2.7.x release schedule, but assuming the same 3 year cycle as we had for 2.6, 2.7.0 will be released in the late spring of 2017.

GnuCash 4.0 will be released 28 June 2020. Unstable releases will begin in March 2020.

We will do monthly releases for three months to mop up all of the early bugs and then release about every three months unless a major bug is reported that demands a release as soon as it is fixed.
