Google had already given a hint about Panda algorithms being pushed out every month over a period of ten days. Matt Cutts also said that there is already a delay in pushing out the monthly Panda refresh because Google wanted to release updates that will soften the algorithm a bit.
And now, Google has confirmed a Panda release saying:
Google is taking the quality of search results seriously and this has been proven with the Google Panda and Penguin updates. Both the updates can work in sync with each other to focus on specific areas of a website and eliminate the low quality websites from the search results. However, there's still a lot more improvements required across different niches.
Google seems to have done their last manual Panda refresh late afternoon on March 14. Forums are rife with a Panda update release with webmasters and SEOs talking about rank changes.
As posted earlier, Panda updates in future will be more integrated with main algorithm and less likely to get noticed. So this must be the last Panda refresh they pushed out manually.
