Hello. I have a website on a WF server. A new version of the website is about to be released and will get a different WF server/account. I need the domain to then point at this new server. What is the best way to go about this without having a lot of downtime?

There's another question that talks about setting up a 2nd record for the old server. Any additional details on that?

For your first question, please see: Transfer site between Webfaction accounts

For the second, that is applicable only when you are moving a site to a different server on the same account. Since you're moving to a different machine and a different account, that procedure is not applicable.
