The latest Panda Update #22, affected 0.8% of the English Queries: Google says

Google confirmed that it had rolled out a Panda Update around November 21, as a response to Barry Schwartz’s email inquiry regarding a possible update during the week. Barry reported on November 19 about his speculations on a possible Panda update that might had done over the weekend, and that he had mailed Google seeking a confirmation. Google responded saying,

We make over 500 improvements to Google Search each year so we can surface high-quality information for our users.” The search ‘big’ also clued him of a possible Panda refresh within the next 7-10 days. So the update has happened just two days after Barry had asked for a confirmation on Panda #22 update from Google. Google has also added that the impact will be meager, of approximately 0.8% English queries.

Most of those who have commented about Panda #22 have reported of improvements in their traffic, while some have seen a drop.  Hope that this update has not affected a lot of the websites around the globe and the impact should not be as severe as what we experienced with the Panda #20 that affected 2.4% of English Queries which in turn created a catastrophic stir in traffic over most websites. The last confirmed Google update in November was Panda Update 21 – which happened on November 5, affecting ~1.1% of English queries.  This was a serene update one compared to the #20 update.
