It's very very hard to put a hard date to Toady's releases, but... yes, we're all expecting-- hoping-- praying-- for the Villains Arc to be all cleaned up sometime in the upcoming months.

After this arc, Toady'll be moving on to the graphics support and whatnot for the upcoming Steam release. Then... armies? Maybe? I think? Then the Big Wait.

This is not the Big Wait. It's just this weird rabbit hole we went up going down when Toady realized just how much fun stuff he could cook up to go along with and support basic villainy. We're gonna get all-new evil supernatural stuff, religious expansions, mercenary bands... some kind of an abstracted economical thingummy I think... and a bunch of stuff I don't even remember. It's gonna be grand. :D

Villains release (couple of months from now probably).

Numerous bug-fix releases (2-6 months).

Development on QoL, UI and Graphics Capability Arc (6-12 months).
(Hard to tell with this last one, as it'll need some closed testing before release which has never been done before).

Steam release.

Numerous bug-fix releases. (3-6 months).

Improved siege, etc updates (maybe included in above, maybe another great year-long rabbit hole).

Big Wait (2-3 years or so).

First Mythgen release.

Bug fixes, etc, etc...

It's absolutely going to be great. I think some long-standing issues introduced with DF2011 and DF2012 are finally going to be cleaned up (i.e. bogeyman). I only wish Toady could finish the night creatures list off this release...

The thing is there's got to be some changes for how conspiracies work and how you as an adventurer can take part in them, or fight against them... I think that's what's in for either this month or this season.

reimplementation of dwarven economy?
so far it only applies to the player in adv mode - that needs to change.

Next major rewrite after the major rewrite that follows the Mythgen releases (on politics, society and set up for starting scenarios). Unless Boats (Moving Fortress Parts) comes first. A good 10 years away at least.
