Google will not be announcing or confirming updates or iterations of Panda at all. We should be prepared for that. As it is we have had ten months of hints on the record
I think the threads will be the best indicator anyway. It's cause and recovery effects are pretty well known at a high level through the 4-7 week cycles.
There does seem to be some hightened crawler / indexing activity - so maybe somethings due soon before the Googlers head off for Christmas and New Year to open their Christmas gifts and celebrate.
Makes me wonder what's in store for the New Year - couldn't take another thumping as hard as i observed in Feb 2011.
