Create autoupdater for AdoptOpenJDK binaries #4

BitRock installers include an auto-update tool.

This issue is to investigate whether the auto-updater is suitable for the project, and write the client and server metadata to represent our releases.

A quick read through the docs implies that the autoupdater has to be invoked by cron / task scheduler on a regular check for updates on some platforms.

If we think about Windows we need to keep in mind that users are typically not administrators and are not allowed to install software. Automatic update need to be an optional feature that could be enabled by default. Not difficult, just do not forget about this, please.

Could it be possible to start small and just do a regular check for updates?
Even if it then redirect to download link, at least users would be notified of availability of an update. Something like CCleaner update check for example (i think it is implemented using a scheduled task)
