What is the latest estimation of when will the switch to PoS happen?

Last time the question was asked about 6 months ago, the answer was mid-2016, which is just around the corner. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/33802343/when-will-ethereum-switch-to-proof-of-stake.

    I think no one knows... even its creators... – Nicolas Massart May 8 '16 at 21:42
  • At least the difficulty bomb makes the issue a pressing one... – Roland Kofler May 9 '16 at 3:26
  • Moving targets and not a good fit for StackExchange. It's better to ask on another site like the Ethereum reddit. – eth Nov 20 '16 at 1:54

When it's (nearly) ready !
Ethereum is highly innovative, and developed in 'agile' mode. Even the content of the releases may be swapped or changed. So, that kind of product is released when the end is in sight...
The latest roadmap seems here, making Mist(Metropolis) by early2017.
And Casper PoS (Serenity) should be next.
