I could have sworn there was an LBP thread around here already. I searched for several variations of “LBP” and “LittleBigPlanet” in thread titles, and didn’t find one.
On to the actual news, Media Molecule announced Little Big Planet 2 for winter 2010.
The current new issue of Edge has screenshots of new bits, which you can find all over the internet if you care to, but are probably bad form to link to.

Loaded with new stuff that probably would have been ridiculous to add as add-ons to the original, like the Sack-bot programmable characters and the ability to condense a lot of logic programming onto a single item now (rather than building a large switch array). Along with other great new things like the ability to switch to a pseudo top down view (which appears to be just sticking the characters onto the back wall of the current setup), direct control seats that allow for complicated control of in-game items, and a grappling hook.
Also of note Mouse and Keyboard support for the create mode confirmed in this post: http://ps3.nowgamer.com/news/3117/lbp2-to-support-mouse-and-keyboard
