A Big and a scary new version of Penguin update is been warned by Google for quite some time. Earlier this month when Matt Cutts released the video about the upcoming SEO menu he mentioned about the closer version of Penguin 2.0.

Let us know your opinion in comments.
In the above mentioned video. We soon deploy the next generation of ‘Penguin 4’ internally we call it as ‘Penguin 2.0’. Penguin which is needed for webspam and to find the black hat webspam and address that. The version of Penguin 1.0 is little deeper where the forthcoming Penguin 2.0 goes little ore deeper where a major changes are discovered.
Late on Wednesday, Cutts revealed the update “we started rolling out the next generation of penguin webspam algorithm on (May 22, 2013), and now it’s complete. Nearly 2.3% of English US-queries are affected that regular user might notice. Languages of more webspam will see more impact
Google has done the fourth Penguin related launch where it not just a data refresh but a major change made in algorithm aspect. For more information on SEO for coming months refer the video link.

Side note: Cutts tweeted out a link to a “special spam report form” for spam that Penguin missed:
The rolled out update still working on Penguin-ifying results where it ‘ll come in data refreshing much like two versions we’ve seen. He also talked for link spammers about denying the value of up stream.

It remains to be seen just how big the impact of this update really is on webmasters. If you’ve been affected (either positively or negatively)
