Version 4.0.1 is here!
This version(with 4.0.0) includes a ton of changes!

For simplicity i will just stuff the changelog here

  • Rewrote the client into an API/Framework
  • New Wx based download dialog
  • Official support for addons! (still needs a gui for users to add addons to the updater)
  • Removed dependency for grep, wget and curl (wget and curl are used as fallbacks only)
  • Improved the speed on deleting the maincache on windows
  • Changed internal file structure to be more organized
  • Legacy scripts for launching parts of the client (ex: rsu-settings)  are provided in this version until version 4.0.2 or 4.0.5
  • Download progress dialog for windows and mac
  • Client launcher now uses the runescape news rssfeed so dependency for libwebkitgtk1 is removed
  • Launcher works on Wx2.8 now
  • If wxperl is installed, the launcher will start if rsu-query is called without any parameters. If wxperl is not installed, it will start runescape.
  • Removed dependency for p7zip/7zip on mac and windows (using native tools instead)
  • Improved the look of the updater.
  • Fixed memory leak in the client launcher.
  • Let addons with info.conf at their root add themself to the updater!
  • Add support for using the download gui with wget and curl
  • Add support for running the launcher on older versions of perl (proper support for ubuntu10.04+)
  • Running for the first time will now automatically download the jagexappletviewer.jar instead of asking you to update.
  • Made launcher fetch news and do other time consuming operations in new threads.
  • Support for Old School RuneScape

You can get the new version from the PPA, AUR or Universal Archive

Is there a way to change the Rs game logo in the unity dash? While I'm playing the icon image is very blurry, and I'd like to clean it up. Thanks

Just replace the jagexappletviewer.png that is inside the clients "share/img" folder

it is either inside the client folder itself or inside $HOME/.config/runescape

Hikari, is there any way in which I can contact you via email? I just wanted to ask some questions about how your client works

Writing a comment with your email included is the easiest and i will just contact you through that :P
Or contact me through launchpad.net

Huge fan of the client because I just started playing old school. Is there any way you could support full screen in old school?
Thanks a bunch

There is no way to support fullscreen in oldschool when it does not even have fullscreen or resizable mode, which as far as i know is not something they will add as it will ruin the concept of oldschool (plus the engine from 2007 is not capable to handle it)
