I'm not sure exactly which one you mean, but Blizzard did put up a preview, offering a few pages from the core book, including the stuff for the new Scout core class. Go here.
There was also an interview with E. Deirdre Brooks, the developer, recently posted on WolfSpoor. Go here.
WoolSpoor also has a handy page that's collected most of the information regarding the Warcraft RPG so far, including an interview that Deirdre, along with Andrew Bates, did with HomeLan. Check out the page here.

If so, it won't be enough to keep me from buying it...but the spring in my step as I go to do so will be noticably smaller.
And if so, it's not really a big deal...axe alignment for faction allegance, axe wizards for sorcerers (and mebbie give them a slightly more generous spell progression). Done and done.
Yes to alignment and fire-and-forget magic.
That said, affiliation/allegiance is a central component of the Warcraft RPG, particularly regarding the make-up of PC parties. Alignment remains important, as the battle between Good vs. Evil is, of course, key to the RTS itself, but the relationships between the different affiliations (i.e., Alliance and Horde) should make for some great roleplaying.
Wizards still have a key role in the game, so don't go axing them too soon!
