Update: A ‘b’ version has been released and is available through the launcher. Scroll down for server links and bug fix list!
We’ve been working really hard on the new Resource Pack system, and we think it’s at the point where we can finally push it live. This is a huge step forward for the future plugin API and will replace texture packs. Unfortunately, texture packs will no longer be supported but you can use this fancy tool to automatically convert them! Please report all issues about resource packs, and the snapshot in general, to our bug tracker!

Wahey, we have Resource Packs now! Texture Packs are gone forever. Don’t worry about your favourite texture pack however, Dinnerbone has provided us with a lovely Texture Pack to Resource Pack program!
So, What Are Resource Packs?
From what I can understand, Resource Packs are the latest development in the Mod API. Resource Packs are the future for mods, texture packs, custom sounds and more. They will be less likely to crash, and won’t stuff up your jar file! Exciting!
