1940 Census - who's not searchable?

Ancestry.com announced a dozen more indexed states but there are still a few un-searchable states.
The states currently not indexed are:

Connecticut
Illinois
Maryland
New Jersey
North Carolina
South Carolina
Texas
West Virginia
There are also territories included in the 1940 census, those not indexed are:
American Samoa
Guam
Panama Canal
Puerto Rico
Virgin Islands
(Alaska and Hawaii are the only territories indexed at this point)
That only leaves the odd district, Washington, D.C. which IS indexed on Ancestry.com.
That's not bad for just under four months of indexing. Will all states be indexed before five months are up?
