This release adds lots of new functionality to RuneLite to make the end-user experience even better, and to compete with well established third-party clients.
The most notable new feature is the new UI design. I tried to make it look as close to the native OSRS interfaces as possible. Here is the end result:
The UI was updated for all of the current RuneLite plugins, and the new API for it is really easy to use, so it can be used in future plugins too. An example of plugin using the new UI api is the new Team Capes plugin.
The plugin is showing the amount of players wearing specific team capes currently visible on the map, which is very useful for pking clans. Here is how it looks in game:
Till now it was hard to check the price of item you just got as a drop from monster, or just simply to check price of stack of your precious magic logs in bank. That is why there were quite a few improvements to examine plugin in the client. Now you are able to examine items and item stacks in you bank, inventory, equipment screen or even in the Miscellania screen and it shows Grand Exchange and High Alchemy price of that item in the game chat. Here is small example:
To make talking to your clan mates easier, there is new clan chat plugin that shows current ranks of every clan chat member next to his/her name. Example:
There were also some background changes in the client to make it work better, fix some bugs and possibly make it faster. One of the background improvements that is also visible to end users is the use of the native notification system, so it now supports every Linux distribution with working notification system and even Mac OS (with same notification support for Windows as before). Example of the notification system in action on Arch Linux with Dunst notification daemon:
Well, hopefully you like new release, and as usual, enjoy!
We had 9 contributors this release! Special thanks to @deathbeam for his hard work.
