DMD seems to have a quite updated roadmap in the wiki:

Does something like this exist for Phobos too?
The page above mentions Phobos, but only that it's a moving target.

There is no Phobos roadmap at this point. It's all very adhoc at this point. There are plans for stuff to be replaced or added, and some if it is partway along, but for the most part at this point, something makes it into Phobos whenever it's ready. Most of what happens gets done because someone wants it to get done and takes the time to get it done. We're moving towards a more formalised review process, but even that depends on when someone has something ready for review. We really should better document what's intended to be replaced and possibly even what we expect to have done soon, but for the most part at this point, what you see is what you get. If you pay attention to the D and Phobos newsgroups, then you have a better idea of what's coming, but even then, it's not entirely clear. There's definitely no roadmap though. - Jonathan M Davis
