On the latter DC there is a big cleanup of older Supplemental Results in progress.

Risking standing corrected within few days. The following is my own personal opinion :-)
I wouldn't expect an update of the kind we have been used to previously as Allegra for example. The classical updates are gone for ever. The same way there is no more Google Monthly Dance.
What we should expect instead is:
- Data Refresh
- Data Push
- Bad Data Push
PR and BL updates aren't big issues or important issues, IMO. I mean they are old data after all ;-)

THERE HAVE BEEN NO UPDATES IN AWHILE!.
However, recently the changes have a different "feel" to them, than they did just a year or so ago. This is especially noticeable if you check a small selection of DCs from time to time.

The 27th, the 17th have been dates that relatively major changes have been noticed lately (many sites go up and down drastically).
New sites take a good while to be taken seriously by Google even after the initial sandbox period. A site needs a high PR value for its internal pages to have enough clout to rank imo
If you think about it, if the category your site is in has millions of results in google already and they are older sites than yours, its going to take time and a lot of effort for you to overtake them.
Meanwhile, today in google UK i noticed the serps were real poor earlier on almost all data centres, so some change was rolled out, im pleased to see that currently its much better.
I dont know if something was rolled back late evening or if another data push was added to bring the content up to speed. Either way a change to the serps is certainly evident now imo
I believe that Google hasn't updated in around 1 year... sites playing musical chairs while hardly any new data is implemented
Obviously listings for the most popular search phrases will percolate up more slowly in the absence of an algorithm change, but to say there have been no updates sounds like you're deliberately overlooking what Google has managed to accomplish.
New pages can be indexed at will but will they rank well?, I say no not unless you have a very popular site.
Google so far as I see it hasn't accomplished anything except managing to go backwards in time with it's algo mimicking the likes of Yahoo and Msn.
In my sector I see the same thing over and over again - a refreshing return of millions of spam sites with each new refresh, I call that "the regressive search".
I am sure Google is doing a lot, but for me, its up-down baby for 2 years :)
100% agree, see exactly the same thing.
Its a nightmare on one of our clients sites that ranks fine in those three but just awfull in the others (bulk of data centres).Im trying to work out what exactly they are rolling out in the bulk of data centres.
For example the site had about 7,000 back links previously. In some data centres it still showing 7,000 in others it showing 12,000 and in others 5,000.
