That's right, the 1.2.5 snapshot is ready for testing!  Players can take a look at the fixes and changes coming to the official 1.2.5 update (coming soon), but the snapshot has a particular focus on modders; with an early look at the future update, mods can be ready as soon as it officially goes live!  Additionally, the extra time between the snapshot and update will be used to ensure that Bukkit is up-to-date and ready to go when 1.2.5 becomes official.

Downloads:

Minecraft 1.2.5 Client: Download here
Minecraft 1.2.5 Server .jar: Download here
Minecraft 1.2.5 Server .exe: Download here

Changes in 1.2.5:

Added shift clicking support in furnaces
Added method to easily acquire blocks you have selected in the world in Creative mode using the ‘pick block’ key
Made the Direct Connect dialog remember the last IP for the current session
Fixed issues detected certain links in chat
Fixed wild ocelots behaving like tamed cats
Fixed various chat crashes
Made cats less eager to sit on things
Made cats less patient
Fixed world generation failing under certain circumstances
Fixed issues turning off sound under certain circumstances
Removed all ghost entities under the command of Lord Herobrine
Fixed crash when pasting certain characters in chat
Fixed slash ‘/’ key not behaving correctly in certain environments
Fixed command matching being too greedy (for example: typing ‘/stophammertime’ no longer stops your server)
Fixed not being able to click coloured links
Fixed potential issue with village door detection (which could cause too many villagers)
Made using a stack of bowls on Mooshrooms not consume the whole stack of bowls
Made punching a TNT block with flint and steel in hand destroy and drop a TNT block (right-clicking will activate the TNT)

1.2.5 Full release:

The exact same version will be added to the launcher on Wednesday April 4, at 15:00 CEST (06:00 in California, 09:00 in Florida, 22:00 in Korea, and 23:00 in Sydney).

Shift clicking into furnaces is a nice feature, but I think that I would prefer shift clicking for brewing stands. That would add a lot more convenience.

As much as I didn't like having an update... I'm happy to see it being mainly bug fixes. I'm sorry, but I was just getting tired of unnecessary updates. I didn't see anything about the Mod API in there unfortunately... so hopefully that will be in the next update.

Oh, and THANK YOU for giving an EXACT time on the release. You have no idea how helpful that is to Modders, Server Owners, Bukkit and even the players. You should do this every time there's an update.

Quote my post to make sure I see it.

I completely agree this is a very positive precedent for future releases of Minecraft.  I don't mind if Mojang changes their mind if they find a serious bug (or the community finds one with a preview snapshot) as that should also be a part of the preview process.  Still, offering a preview with an expected day and time for the formal release is showing that Mojang is becoming very professional and that they care about their customers.

This is a very positive step in the right direction!

No, they were not. They removed Him many times, but He always returns. He's like... Unremovable..

I always get excited when a new update/snapshot comes.

Sadly I'm at school sometimes, so I have to see Youtube updates.

Game chap!

So nobody else noticed that they failed once again to put in the other coloured plank stairs, I mean it ain't a big deal, just not very organized.
