Get it while its hot, 20gb download though, luckily we have 100Mbps download speed at work, took 11 minutes to download  :-)
Installing now...

official website is down, but there's a cached version available

Highlights include

Quote
Revit 2018 extends the power of global parameters, which help embed design intent in a model to also apply to radial and diameter dimensions and equality constraints.
The new coordination model linking lets you use a Navisworks file as an underlay in Revit, making it easier to coordinate with outside teams that might not be working in Revit.  This lets you extend Revit and we are excited to see what you start to use this functionality to accomplish.
One of my favorite features, Revit 2018 now includes the ability to schedule and add parameters for links and groups, helping you to better understand and quantify a project.
Revit now supports SAT and Rhino file import.  This enhancement that was part of Revit 2017.1.
You can create steel connections between columns, beam, and bracings using any families, including those that are user-defined. In addition, the Steel Connections for Revit add-in brings in more than 100 new connections for detailed steel modeling. Engineers can now model not only the steel frame in a BIM environment, but also hundreds of types of steel connections and details that seamlessly integrate with Autodesk Advance Steel to automate steel detailing and make models fabrication-ready.
Mechanical design improvements help you capture early stage energy requirements more effectively with outdoor air settings for user-definable space and building types
Hydronic system capabilities include new analytical connections to facilitate easier design iteration. Improvements for mechanical engineers include closed-loop hydronic piping analysis — connecting flow and pressure-drop data to pumps– and utilizes a new analysis engine that computes in background processes, improving model editing performance.
Electrical design improvements include new capabilities to edit circuit pathways to better capture more accurate voltage drop and analytical design data.

I Wasn't expecting any..

What i find interesting is the coordination model (navisworks) underlay.
Should make a matrix of possibilities and soon to be possibilities of underlay IFC vs DWG vs NWC.
But I think i know the way things will go 2018>

We managed to go through the whole 2017 release without using it in a single project, we were ready to use it, the design teams we were working with however aren't.

I personally like the fact that it's not backwards compatible. It would destroy functionality of new objects in older versions. And then what happens if/when you upgrade the model you downgraded? Total cluster F. I experienced enough of that with older versions of Autodesk Building Systems (precursor to AutoCAD MEP) and Civil 3D.

Rev'it : It's in the name..;-) same for me. I skipped 2015 2016 for a project still in progress..
