Could you please offer the alexa-skills-kit jar on some sort of maven repo or some other repository? A simple list of downloads would be better than hunting download links in documentation. Seriously guys, I just spent the better part of an hour trying to find out why my version (alexa-skills-kit-126.96.36.199.jar) didn't have SpeechletResponse.newAskResponse() that is indicated in the javadoc. The jar file is hidden in an example project and only has the label "1.0" which I assumed was the same version that I had. Well, it turns out that "1.0" is a greater version than "188.8.131.52". Go figure. This sort of problem was supposed to be fixed with maven. I feel like I'm back in jar h#*! again.
Hi Gordon Child, Apologies for the delay in replying. The implementation of the feature that you are describing is currently in progress. I don't have an ETA at the moment, however it will be rolled out in one of the subsequent versions. If you have any further questions, please let us know. Kind regards, Levon
