Retribution is shaping up to be a pretty good expansion.
NEW bounty system. Ok, yes, it's replacing the OLD bounty system, but the new one sounds like people will actually be able to use it easier.
NEW flagging system. As with the bounty system it's obviously replacing an old system. However, it should actaully create more pvp in high sec, and make high sec pvp a worthwhile activity.
NEW items being added to the game. Not really sure exactly what they are, but the last patch said something about having them seeded already, you just can't buy them yet.
Four of the current frigates are getting repurposed into a NEW role of logistics. Which will mean that those four frigates will actually be in demand now, as well as small logistics modules.
No, they aren't that big and it has been awhile sinse we've got an expansion that actually added any really new content to the game. However, I haven't had to pay extra for an expansion in the 6+ years I've played EVE; so that's fine with me.
I would like to see some truelly new content get into the game though. WiS, Station exploration, orbital bombardment, ring mining, new modular PoS's. All things we should see in future expansions over the next couple of years.
PS: I don't think it would be fair to compare the way EVE receives content to something like rift. A game like Rift can get a lot of new content pretty quickly because all of the content is structured. It's not that hard to create a new dungeon with scripted events, or a new battleground. EVE is quite different and it can't be as easy to develop content for such a huge sandbox that doesn't break it or devalue the emergent gameplay that CCP is dedicated to.

Just because ships will have NEW role or there are NEW ships or modules does to mean they will be in demand.
This is a part of the problem, just because CCP touch something does not mean it will be awesome, good or just even working as expected.
