I'm not a member of the development team. But I found some pages that are interesting to have a look. It said Lazarus 1.8 is scheduled for release on 2016-12-31:

Yeah, it was our bad decision to wait for fpc-3.0.2, but 1.6.2 has more bug fixes because of such waiting :)  Hope that tagging and release will start in next 5-10 days.

yes, I did notice that there are many more merges for 1.6.2.  So that will be a good thing :-)

There will be release candidates for us to test right ?

If I forget, I always use the latest stable 32bit version of Lazarus and FPC. At the time of this signature that is Laz 1.6 and FPC 3.0
OS: Windows 10 64 bit and NetRunner Rolling

If I am not mistaken, release candidates are only before the x.x.0 version (1.6.0, 1.8.0 etc).

Not anytime soon. It was not planned or discussed yet. There is some interesting development that must stabilize first.
I would say "not earlier than summer 2017".
On the other hand there will hopefully be many dot releases for 1.6 before that (1.6.4, 1.6.6 ... ?).

Will the next dot releases be based on FPC 3.0.2 (assuming it's released soon enough) ?

I'd like to release a new version of Coedit but unfortunately I've switched to FPC 3.0.2 as the minnimal compiler version required. Also I have to wait for a new official Laz version that would fix a clipboard problem with the GTK widgetset...In fine I start wondering if I haven't shoot myself in the foot (e.g if next Laz version includes the fix but not FPC 3.0.2 that's bad for my plans)...

Of course, but don't assume anything. FPC 3.0 was released well over a year ago but still no dot release ...
Better ask about FPC schedule in FPC forum section or mailing list.

As I wrote, I don't know about FPC dot-release schedule.
