This happens every month when Google refreshes their index (lovingly referred to as the Google Dance). Normally, Google makes subtle changes to their algorithms, but it's true that the changes have been more drastic in the past few months. If your site dropped out with the last update, be patient. Give it at least until next month's update before you begin making changes to your site. Assuming you're not cheating, your rankings should eventually return to near normal once Google has had a chance to evaluate their changes.
