Cross Platform Jlink

The following configuration defines a distribution named app that’s configured to generate 2 jlink Java runtimes, one for OSX, the other for Linux. The project source is kept at https://github.com/duke/app. The zip files of both distributions will be uploaded to the GitHub release, and a Docker image will be generated for the Linux zip.
