Thought i'd share this piece of news since it's relevant to any SEO. I'll summarise a few key points: Title length increased to 70 characters Meta data description increased by about 16-20 characters per line. I did a quick site: search for my sites and noticed the descriptions are indeed longer. Probably one more thing for us to optimize now eh? Since i can't yet post url links, just do a search for "google increases width of main search results column".
