Here is a copy of an Email that I received from Southwest Airlines today. It lists the types of items that can no longer be in carry on luggage on their domestic flights, as well as the exceptions to the new rules.

I think it is likely that other domestic airlines will have new rules regarding carry on items identical, or nearly identical to the new requirements listed by Southwest.

Dear Rapid Rewards Members:
We want to keep you updated on the latest information provided by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) so you can plan your travel accordingly. Due to heightened security procedures, the TSA has changed the guidelines regarding carryon luggage.
What Cannot be Carried on the Aircraft:
The TSA is currently prohibiting all liquids and gels in carryon luggage. This includes all beverages, shampoo, lotions, creams, toothpaste, hair gel, and other items of similar consistency. Additionally, any of these items purchased beyond the security checkpoint will not be permitted onboard the aircraft.
Exceptions That Can be Carried on the Aircraft:
Baby formula or breast milk, if a baby or small child is traveling, and prescription medicine with a name that matches the Customer's name (along with insulin and essential other non-prescription medicines) can be carried onboard and are subject to inspection at the checkpoint.
Electronic items (including notebook computers, MP3 players, PDAs, etc.) are allowed through the security checkpoint, and all carryon items are subject to additional screening. We encourage you to visit the TSA's website for additional information about carryon items. Southwest Airlines' checked baggage policies are unchanged.
We will continue to post any changes or future updates at southwest.com, so we encourage you to check back often.
