Android Studio Gets New Features for 2.0 Release
Google has released a beta version of Android Studio 2.0, the latest update to its integrated development environment (IDE) for Android. Key features in the new release include Instant Run, which allows developers to see the impact of code changes immediately; a new user interface for the Android emulator; app indexing; improvements to the Android Debug Bridge; an improved GPU profiler preview; and integration with IntelliJ IDEA 15.
“Android Studio 2.0 is a big release, and now is a good time to check out the beta release to incorporate the new features into your workflow,” blogged Jamal Eason, product manager for Android “The beta release is near stable release quality, and should be relatively bug free. But as with any beta release, bugs may still exist, so, if you do find an issue, let us know so we can work to fix it.”
