I could not more strongly recommend reading the two dev blogs that CCP published today. They are some of the most important conversations we've ever had with our players in a long time.
The first, by CEO Hilmar Veigar Petursson, contains a necessary and heartfelt message for each and every EVE player of both the present and the past.

The second, by EVE's Senior Producer Arnar Gylfason, contains information about an unprecedented refocus of the entire EVE development team onto EVE's core gameplay (spaceships) for the Winter 2011 expansion and beyond.

Everyone at CCP looks forward to revealing more about what we have planned for the coming weeks and months in the very near future. These two blogs begin that dialogue.
It is an exciting time to be flying internet spaceships.
