Didn't see anything on the weekend, but I do have an update on my site that recovered from Panda last month and is now running a little ahead year-on-year. What surprised me, vs earlier "recovery" stories I'd seen, is it wasn't an all-at-once change, like the original penalty. One decent bump on Aug 6th, but after that, it mainly took place in daily advances over the following month, though it stalled for a week mid-August.
Since I saw no change on our larger pandalized site, my guess is that the small site (500 to 600 a day from Google) just made the Panda cut, but somehow it's "goodness" was reinforced each day. And while the year-on-year key phrases changed radically in some cases, the basic traffic distribution to the pages remained about the same.
