Valve has released the Source Software Development Kit (SDK) Tools via Steam. A precursor to the release of the full SDK, which will be released shortly after Half-Life 2 is made available, the Source SDK Tools release offers a comprehensive toolset for starting production on Source-based MODs, including Hammer, XSI EXP for Half-Life 2, compiling tools, the Source Model Viewer, documentation on programming, modeling, building materials, and more. For more information, please visit Collective.valve-erc.com

Update by jacksonj04: Currently this is only available to those who have CS:S, ie those who have pre-ordered HL2 on Steam.

Everytime I use steam now, the mouse ***** up. Everytime I try to click it acts as if I never click. I have to click 5000 times before it will click. It keeps on ******* doing that.

The seventh phase of the Half-Life 2 preload begins to Steam account holders today. This will allow users to download localized Half-Life 2 content and other content in encrypted form. No purchase is required to pre-load Half-Life 2, but is required to activate the game. The moment the game is made available, those who have pre-loaded and purchased the game via Steam will be ready to start playing.

The word from VALVe is that this is only available (at the moment) to those of you with CS:S, namely a HL2 preorder.
