I played my chaos daemon friend last night, and of course I put a bunch of points into instability stuff (being the sneaky DH player that I am). Well, first time I tried to make him take an instability test, he refused to and said that the rule no longer existed. I was fairly upset, as I lost 3 close combats because I simply couldn't kill them all.
also, any idea if daemonic infestation is still in effect? if so, what units?

Nope no more instability, although if it was a freindly he could have at least let you spend the points elsewhere.....
What once was courage has now cursed in the wars we've made.
We are the sinners, before our graves.
The Daemonhunters codex says specifically Daemon packs and Daemonic beast packs. Considering neither Chaos books technically have these any more, it's pretty open ended. My personal suggestion would be to discuss it with your opponent before the game starts. Judged by what was listed in the old Chaos dex, The following Daemons would have sustained attack of up you went strictly by the old dex: Bloodletter, Daemonettes, Plaguebearers, Pink Horrors, Nuglings, Screamers, Furies, and Flesh Hounds.
I would be fair to add seekers to that list too, even though they weren't in the original Chaos dex, they fall under the same grouping as screamer, flesh hounds, etc. Special characters added to the units would not get sustained attack.
Chaos space marines would give sustained attack to summoned lesser daemons.
Other than that, the only units that would explicitly get it would be the daemon packs in the DH book. The problem is that the DH codex is way out of date, hopefully the new faq will answer some of these questions.
