A brand new feature is available for testing in the Test Client: Minecraft Snapshot management!
The Curse Client can help make Snapshot management a breeze -- Simply click "Get It" beside the Snapshot you'd like to test, and the Client will download that specific version to a separate folder from your release install, allowing for you to test without fear of save corruption! You can switch between any released snapshot at any time, and can additionally copy your Worlds over from your release version of Minecraft for even more specialized testing!
In addition, the "My Textures" and "Get More Textures" tabs are available on this install, making texture pack testing a breeze.
This beta version of the Snapshot feature can be tested on the test version of the Curse Client, which can be found here. Please note that once testing is done, it is advised to resume using the release version of the Client.

Due to some unforseen complications during a routine maintenance, we've had to temporarily disable access to subversion repositories in order to do rollbacks on a subset of repositories.
Update 12:42am CST / 06:42 UTC:
All affected repositories have been restored to their latest backups from this sunday and access to repositories have been restored. Unfortunately, that is the most recent backup we have where we know the issue not to be present. All affected repositories have had their UUID changed, so you will have to do a fresh checkout. This was done to prevent any corruption of server side repositories, due to limitations in how svn handles revisions.
The easiest way to restore any commits made since sunday is take your old checkout, remove the .svn folder(s) and copy it on top of the fresh checkout, and then commit it.
We're very sorry about this situation, and are still investigating what went wrong during the maintenance to cause this.
Rolling Upgrades of Subversion Repositories on Monday, October 29th Starting at 15:00 UTC (completed)
Posted by prencher Oct 26, 2012 at 15:18 UTC
About a month ago we upgraded to Subversion 1.7. On Monday, we will be doing rolling upgrades of all of our Subversion repositories to the latest on disk format. There will be no overall interruption of service, although specific repositories will be unavailable while they are being upgraded.
This will give access to the latest Subversion features for all repositories.
We will be starting this process at 15:00 UTC and expect it to take around 10 hours to upgrade all repositories.
Note: If you attempt to access your repository while it is being upgraded, it will fail.
