I bring about the release of another automatically updating client!!!!!
After hitting ok to the first installation dialog box (You can change the directory of the installation later. It seems that the launcher doesn’t function if you change the installation directory in the first dialog box.)
Below is the main screen of the launcher. From here, you can alter the installation directory and the arguments with which minecraft will launch.

After installing the files, you can log in (with a spoofed name albeit) and you should see some activity from the console.

PROOF OF FUNCTIONALITY AND UP TO DATE-NESS
Click here to view the original image of 1920x1080px.
If you click on the “Edit Profile” button located on the launcher, you can alter the ways in which your minecraft will launch.
You can have the launcher download the bleeding edge developer snapshot versions of minecraft so you can see what’s currently in development for the game.
You can also set launch arguments so that those of you with those crazy graphics cards and 256×256 texture packs can enjoy more memory.
