SEORoundtable has a nice summary of the Google Panda updates since it started last year.
And we have on our blog a webinar that gives you tips on how to deal with the Panda:

They have a long way to go until all junk sites are wiped out and original, unique sites are at the top. For many searches you still get stuff that is not relevant/not what you're looking for or just plain SEO spam.

I agree, it will be a long while before these so-called "junk sites" will be eradicated. The thing is, as Google takes out these sites with each Panda update, there are new ones added daily.

Although it would really be a long way for Google, currently, Google is making huge changes and huge steps in sweeping off sites that are not quality. When Google Panda was launched, a lot of business were really affected. It made clear to many that Google still is the major player here and those who disobey will get punished. :))

Punish those who disobey indeed. Google recently de-indexed BMR, and a couple of other blog netwworks. It's a sure sign that they are serious about quality and will take out sites that try to " game " the system.
