Panda is definitely not dead, I have it from the horse's mouth ...
In fact the horse has been very quite since Amit Singhal announced Hummingbird. Since then, Matt Cutts hasn't posted a single word about Panda, Penguin or Hummingbird. I think there are reasons for Matt Cutts quiteness. Matt Cutts might be leaving Google Search Quality Team or leaving Google entirely.
Personaly I think Matt Cutts deserves a better job than Head of Google WebSpam Team. Matt is a very qualified person, indeed.
