Please review an update to the JAR “specification” (in the loose sense of the term):

(This also includes a new attribute Launcher-Agent-Class, a Jigsaw related change to better support Java agents.)
For comparison, the HTML version online is here:
- second i have added sections on multi-release JAR files:
this is based against the first patch so the changes can be easily viewed.
I expect some further editing of this specification to add further links to module related stuff and tidy up existing links to tools etc.
