Google has updated Android Studio. Version 1.5 of the IDE features improved stability, new static code analysis tools and an improved memory profiler. “This new analysis feature can analyze a heap dump to look for known problems, such as leaked activities,” said Google’s Reto Meier.

Meier added, “There’s a number of bug fixes in the editor area where we’ve been working hard to polish code completion for resource and manifest files. For example, you can now use short names when doing code completion for custom views. We also make sure that Android Studio doesn’t steal your focus if you switch virtual desktops during the build and run phase.”
