The latest release eliminates the need to recompose the STAPL file before executing a new STAPL operation.
STAPL is fundamentally different from Altera's original JAM which was a high-level, interpreted language approach.

Lattice also takes issue with the fact that, contrary to what Altera's released statement implied, the STAPL proposal has not yet been approved by JEDEC as a standard.
STAPL is a vendor- and platform-independent language for programming in-system programming (ISP)-capable programmable logic devices (PLDs) from a variety of vendors, via the IEEE standard 1149.
With our high-speed programming solution and Altera's immediate Jam STAPL version 1.
It has been Altera's overall strategy to use the Jam STAPL standards wherever possible in design flows, testing, and design support," said Bryon Moyer, Altera director of customer applications.

As an original supporter of Jam, we are pleased that STAPL has achieved industry-standard status, and we will have a relatively easy task in providing STAPL support.
There are two software components in the STAPL programming solution: the "composer" and the "player.
