For those that don't know, Nakamura Shungiku likes to separate the numeration for each pairing in acts. Junjou Egoist is around act 15 and Junjou Romantica is around act 28.
Under spoiler thread, the link and image from act 28 these days.

There is a new chapter out, but i can't say which act it is cause some a very inteligent person modified the numbering in more than one online reader, not respecting the authors numbering choice.
And yes, i'm being sarcastic.
Edit: i could find the info somewhere. ¬¬

According to fencer_x, The last cover of Ciel seems to bring news about Junjou Romantica Anime.
It's still not clear if it is an OVA or a full 12 episodes season.
Keep tuned for confirmation and more details.
