As you know, Google told us Penguin 4.0 won't be released by the end of this year. But people are asking me, will it be released in January.
Well, it looks like it but Google doesn't want to make any promises.
John Mueller of Google said in a Google+ hangout this morning at 18:44 mark into the video on if Penguin 4.0 will happen in January. He said he is confident it will be but doesn't want to make any promises.
This is what he said:
Um, I don't want to make any date promises but I am hopeful that things are lined up. Since it was kind of on the edge for this year, I'm pretty confident that that's good enough for January. But I really don't want to make any announcements on that.

So give it another month or so, I guess?
