According to WMT, the manual penalty has been lifted. Though they didn't mention anything regarding the Penguin hit.
Traffic hasn't changed, but I have no idea what to expect considering this is my first dealing with a manual penalty.
Rather oddly, but I'm sure coincidently, another website on the same WMT account has had a 20% increase in traffic since I received the reply last night. And, even more strangely, the CPC on the ads doubled. I'm sure it's a coincidence, but worth noting.
