DOS released the Visa Bulletin for May 2016, which includes "Application Final Action Dates" and "Dates for Filing Applications" for the family- and employment-based categories. The bulletin also includes information regarding potential movement for the coming months, and establishes a new cut-off date for the employment-based, fourth preference and certain religious workers preference categories for applicants from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. USCIS has not yet advised whether it will accept adjustment of status applications for family- or employment-based petitions based on filing dates, rather than final action dates, in May 2016.
