An update for 8.2 is incoming please keep posted.

Improved Blizzard UI is an attempt to improve the World of Warcraft interface by styling frames, implementing additional functionality and restructuring / hiding existing elements.

This has been customized to out of the box be how I personally like my UI set up however there is extensive configuration available in game by using the Escape -> Interface -> Addons menu. This interface is primarily tested at 2560x1400 but should largely work at any resolution.
