Sorry for not posting about the v2.4 and 2.5, they were basically just maintenance versions.

here are the changelogs for all of them anyway

########## What's NEW!? ##########
##################################
#### Version 2.6 ####
* Added a forcealsa option which will force java to use the alsa sound server,
 this will make sounds far more stable on linux and they will not disappear randomly
 like they do with pulseaudio. This function requires alsa and alsa-aoss to be installed.
 
* Changed the fallback parameters (incase a prm file is not found) to
 jagexappletviewer.jar -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true 
 -Dcom.jagex.config=http://www.runescape.com/k=3/l=\$(Language:0)/jav_config.ws 
 -Xss1m -Xmx256m -XX:CompileThreshold=1500 -Xincgc -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC 
 -XX:+UseParNewGC jagexappletviewer 
 
 These parameters are the same as the ones used on the website.

#### Version 2.5 ####
* Fixed an issue in the if openjdk was found statement in the findjavabin function
 so that it now works as intended.
 line 342 in runescape
from: if ($openjdk =~ /java-\d{1,1}-openjdk(-\$\(uname -p\)|-i386|-amd64)/)
to: if ($openjdk =~ /java-\d{1,1}-openjdk(|-\$\(uname -p\)|-i386|-amd64)/)

#### Version 2.4 ####
* Removed "jagexappletviewer.jar" permanently from the archive due to the same "Legal Reasons" preventing
 JAGEX from distributing the client in certain countries :(
* Added a check in the runescape script that checks if the file "jagexappletviewer.jar" exists,
 if it does not then it will run the update script.
* Added a notice about jagexappletviewer into the update "menu" in the update-runescape-client script.

Awesome fix for opengl! How did you figure this out?

I was viewing the error output then thought, "wonder if its just a library issue" so i tried linking the openjdk6 libraries to openjdk7 to check if that solved it.
It did so then i closed the terminal and opened a new one and linked to the openjdk7 libraries this time and that also solved the issue (i also tried sun/oracle java which had the same results as openjdk7)

I an surprised this major linking issue have gone undetected by the openjdk maintainers and oracle, yet they push out java7, despite the opengl tickets they get in. :/
