I tried to login last week to start the AD 1.8 thread but my old login is broken (forgotten password). I did let metlslime know, but I imagine he is super busy at the moment. If anyone can update the top part of this thread, it would be awesome thanks.

Since release there has been a patch 1 (the original build was completely broken) and the latest version is on my website.
Here is the 1.8 Patch 1 changelog for anyone who is curious to know what has been added/changed to the mod since 1.7.

The mod is now all in PAK files (its too messy to keep it loose with community content) and it makes it much easier to patch/update.
The mod now supports custom HUDs, a new gameplay mode called Chaos and a new skill level (4) called Evil! I highly recommend that everyone try the new QSS client (there is no new mac version) to get the latest visual effects and custom HUDs!
There are plans for another patch 2, but its going to be a long time coming because I don't want to keep rushing out patches. People don't tend to download patches very much for Quake! Please report bugs here or contact me or bal directly. :)
