If you play a hunter at all, I'm sure you would have noticed this change from the patch if nothing else: we now display our ranged instead of melee weapons!
I wish the change had been documented somewhere, because the only screenshot I can find of my login screen prior to the patch is this one:
...which I took to show off my T5 shoulders more than anything else.
Oh well, it's a nice change - it makes sense that hunters should display our ranged weapons and not our "stat-sticks". Now, if only our bows showed on our backs while walking around...
