I initially shared some statistics on my Google Panda 4.2 recovery. As you know, this site was hit by the Panda 4.1. But there is clear evidence things are improving since 4.2.

Here are some charts, unedited, from Google Analytics. I filtered the source to show on Google organic traffic. I added some lines so you can see the trends.

Orange is before Panda 4.1, blue is after Panda 4.2:
