Re: Java Buildpack v3.2

The Luna support can provide entropy to be used for generating various
truly random security and encryption keys. It that sense it's providing
improved security through a good supply of high quality entropy.

congrats on the release. this has lots of very nice improvements. i
thought Luna HSM was more about a hardware security module for establishing
trust instead of a way to add entropy to a system. does it also have
capabilities related to entropy?

the following highlights:

initial memory values and expected thread values.

- Improved Dynatrace documentation. (via Josef Hoerandtner
- Allow any additional New Relic configuration to be passed through
to the agent. (via Bryan Custer
