time-constantly implemented sounds a bit awkward to my ear.
o May I suggest an alternative: "The secp256r1, secp384r1,
secp521r1, x25519, and x448 curve implementations are
time-constant and remain supported by SunEC." (I'm sure the
wording could be better still).
Yeah, I've been fighting that too. I changed it up by just saying
commonly used as that's more relevant.
* Why are there asterisks around -Djdk.sunec.disableNative=false?
Were you trying to do some kind of markdown notation there?
I was trying to get italics. I thought it worked before but I'm probably
forgotten the proper syntax.
Otherwise it looks good to me.
