Kotlin is gaining widespread attention as being a great programming language, and is now officially supported e.g. for Android development. But the options I see for installing it aren't clear about security issues. I don't know if sdkman checks (or even supports) signatures on packages, I don't know if it automatically tracks security updates on Kotlin and other installed packages (like apt-get does), I don't know how big the install is going to be, etc.
So to sum up
Is there an installation approach for Kotlin that is relatively secure (with package signatures, auto-update etc)?
E.g., is there a PPA for it? (Is anyone even working to package it for Debian/Ubuntu?).
Or does sdkman have the necessary properties?
Or is there some other approach?
Update: I see that ubuntu-make (umake) is an option. For IDEA and Kotlin, it seems the version from their ppa is still needed, as explained at Ubuntu Make 16.03 Released With Eclipse JEE And IntelliJ IDEA EAP Support, More
But I'm surprised that I can't easily find any information on the security aspects of umake, and it seems that they don't do updates yet (updating tools · Issue #74), so my question remains open.
