Newbie here, what does pre-release mean? Can some people get it or does everyone have to wait until July 1st to get the update?
pre-release just means you can download it early and play on it. It's pretty much the same thing but might have a few bugs. anybody who wants it can download it from here, but you need the new launcher to run it.
July 1st is the official release of 1.6.
"Play offline" button please.
Thought this was already given thought.

Wait, what/who is Grum? I haven't played any snapshots, and all I can find on the wiki is a guy nicknamed grum.
Grum is a Mojang developer who regularly plays on servers run by the mod devs. Last saw him in one of Direwolf20's lets play series on Youtube. His avatar often appears in screen captures released by Mojang over the last few months as a kind of "find Grum" version of "find Waldo". Not sure of his responsablites at Mojang but given that DrZhark's horses from his mod are now in vanilla might be a clue.
The wiki says he was originally hired with the rest of the Bukkit team to work on the Plugin API and to maintain Mojang's servers, but then he was made a general developer along with the rest of the Bukkit "recruits," like Dinnerbone.
