How has "the Archons" progressed since the beta 1.1 release last year?

Reasonably new features for this release:

Archon magic! (yes, it works)
Archon "soul vessels" - limits to Archon powers
Sphere of Annihilation super black hole mode
Many nasty bugs have been eliminated. :-)
More monster enhancements than you dare shake a stick at
PK 3.0 support is pretty much finalized
HUD update, a few new features here

What is left leading to final release?

Finalizing the Archon vs. Archon conflict
Deciding if demi-archons will make it in before the mark III recode
Avoid any more feature creep, if at all possible
Decide if the map-hack tech maps will -
a. be included
b. have some kind of limits
(these are the design spec for the "realms of Chaos" world)
Decisions regarding HD pack integration:

What significant part of the current plan is still missing?

The ability to pick up an Archon "soul vessel" and carry it to a flag altar and sacrifice it for the points and / or build up to the Archon total not even written.
Some approximation may be put in - then again it may not.

What is the main challenge?

I got bit hard by the "new code" has to be written _now_ syndrome.
I've started the qc++ v1.07 recode already. This will be a major
resource hog on my limited free time. It will be some time before
this new code base grows into Chaos mod mark (III).
It is very necessary - some of the mark (II) code simply does not go
forward very well. The recode will fix a few corners I painted myself
into with the mark (II) code base.

What is the current status?

I have just squashed the "floating" zombie bug (I hope - the bots are testing for me right now...)

When I am satisfied with the result - I just need to build the release package.
Then boom - you get it. In time for the holiday week.
Gee, arent I a swell guy? Ha ha.

Been busy christmas shopping and such...but -
Server has been up 283000 seconds. I think the bugs are fixed.
Just want to test run singleplayer, see what modes come up.
Build and test a release package...then you all can have it.
Two days maybe.
There is going to be a map pack update, but I think that will be a couple months down the road.

Since the polls are open, now would be a great time for the release. I'm not sure I can get it out in the 6 days that are left... :-(

But, you ask - what future plans are there?
Something that I think will be really awesome -
Procedure generated quake adventures!, along the lines of rogue or net-hack.

Already released -- Date - Released Oct 27, 2012

summary: elements of the 80's micro game archon extrapolated into the Quake universe
visual feature set link:
first feature set:

The current iteration is a deathmatch mod. With singleplayer enhancements.
The premise in the beta will be simple - collect enough power nodules to morph into other forms. The ultimate form to obtain is that of Archon.
After that...well that is for the final release, I'm still working on what to do with the Archons.
My original idea was to recreate the 80's game on the server once there are 2 Archons to fight each other. That might change.
