Alexa Presentation Language (APL) 2022.1 introduces new features and capabilities for APL. APL 2022.1 was released on June 7, 2022.

Revised APL version number format

With the latest APL release, APL version numbers now use a year-based format: <YEAR>.<RELEASE>. Therefore, the latest version of APL is 2022.1. Set the version property of your APL documents to 2022.1 and use 2022.1 in conditional statements in your documents.

Authoring tool updates

The Lottie converter now supports additional Lottie format features:

  • Bezier Interpolation
  • Linear Interpolation
  • Alpha Matte / Mask
  • Spacial Bezier Interpolation
  • Line Cap
  • Trim Paths Individually
  • Radial Gradient
  • Stroke Gradient

Mute and unmute the video audio during runtime

The Video component now includes a dynamic muted property. Set this property to true to mute the audioTrack for the video. Because muted is dynamic, you can mute and unmute the audio at runtime. Use the SetValue command to change this property during runtime.

As part of this update, when the Video component is the source or target of an event, the event.source or event.target event includes a muted property to report the current muted state of the video.
