AFAIK jack_client_new() still works. But it has been
deprecated for a few years now, so you don't have
any excuses...

$PREFIX/include/jack/jack.h will tell you all you
need to know. 

The minimal solution is quite simple - just use an
empty options argument. But while you're there you
(I mean all developers of jackified apps) should
IMNSHO  add the option for the user to set the
application's name as a Jack client.

And of course read the actual name used after having
called jack_client_open() and use that for window
captions etc.
