e10s release is going as per Mozilla plan. Initial phase of e10s release has been already out to 1% of the eligible users with Firefox 48 release and is a success, now the browser vendor is looking to up the e10s activation to 10% from 1% by shipping Firefox 48.0.1, eligible users here should not be using add-ons, touchscreen and accessibility tools. If everything goes perfectly, Mozilla may ship period release today itself via a GoFaster update of the e10srollout add-on and Hello.
FYI, you can still enable multi-process Firefox in Firefox 48 even though its disabled by default to you.
