It looks like Blizzard isn't just patching the game but also updating their web presence. Sounds like a good idea. Here are some links that also include preview shots of the new sites:
Update 7/6/06: WatchingWoW says the new worldofwarcraft.com is now up. I finally got it to load (took a while). Here's what the new website says:
The new main page design is now officially online! The official World of Warcraft community website has undergone a complete redesign to improve both accessibility and user friendliness. We have expanded the left side menu so that all web content is now just one mouse click away, allowing you to find exactly what you’re looking for within seconds. The main page has been restructured as well, making it much easier to keep track of the most recent news, events, and updates to the game.
