Has CPU speed basically stagnated nowadays?

In the good old days, not only were more transistors packed into each new generation of CPU, but the speed increased also. It seems like clock speed increases are basically stagnant these last 10 years, and speed increases these days are done by packing more CPU's (cores) onto a single chip.

Will we see only minor increases in processor speed unless some new technology comes out?
