It is official. Google has confirmed 23rd Panda update that has impacted 1.3% of English queries. 

Pros have seen signs of a major update a week ago, but Google refuted. However, they have confirmed it now on Twitter. Panda has had 22 updates by now, since it was introduced on Feb 24, 2011, to the algorithm as well as data refreshes. 

Webmasters are surprised over Google’s decision to release an update right before Christmas holidays. Last year they promised not to do a Panda refresh before Christmas. Seems they thought otherwise this year.
