Jeb recently stated that Mojang plans on doing weekly "snapshot" pre-releases for players to test.  The pre-release builds are patched much as before - you must manually copy the test .jar over your existing one - and aim to playtest various fixes, additions and such to future official releases.  You can test this week's pre-release by downloading the .jar file here, and copying the downloaded file over your current minecraft.jar file.  

Jeb notes that this pre-release is very close to what version 1.0.1 will be - feel free to test it out and offer feedback!

Exactly its just Notch tricking everyone into paying more ;).  No, but seriously I think the pre-releases are cool and all but if this is what Notch considers the final game then there should not be pre-releases.  I am not saying no updates, because all games update with cool new features but the pre-releases kind of show off bugs that a full game should not show off and also shows the weakness that Mojang cannot spot their bugs in testing.

I totally agree with you on this one !

I don't normally like downloading pre-releases because that means I would have to make a new world for the update to take effect? Is this avoidable? is there a way that I can update my pre-existing worlds?

MineCraft offers soo many different things, some of which Mojang may not be able to spot when testing just because of the way they may play.
