SpaceX issued a statement this morning:

At this time, a May 7th launch appears unlikely. SpaceX is continuing to work through the software assurance process with NASA. We will issue a statement as soon as a new launch target is set.

The next possible launch date is May 10. Published reports indicate that the next date after that would be May 19.

We’ll update this as news becomes available.
