All he's said is that it definitely won't be this year, but next year is still a possibility. (I don't think it's a likely one-- mid-2015 is my personal optimistic estimate-- but you never know.) As of July 2012, he had 200 manuscript pages of complete chapters and another 200 of fragments and rough drafts, out of a planned 1500 or so manuscript pages for the full book. Some of those 200 pages were chapters originally written for A Dance with Dragons but left out due to length, so unless things have picked up since July he's still progressing pretty slowly.

On another note, the Blu-ray and DVD of season two of the TV show comes out tomorrow in the US. Amazon.com has the Blu-ray for $30 and the DVD for $25. I think the prices are the same at Target, which also has an exclusive bonus disc with a 20-minute George R. R. Martin interview.
