We've just released Android Studio 0.2.9. This release contains the following improvements:

  • Updated the IDE base to the IntelliJ EAP build #132.197 sources. The release notes for this version of the IDE which lists the bugs fixed are here:
    • This fixes the subversion bug many users have reported (see issue 60012)
  • New "Extract Dimension Resource" refactoring
  • Improved bitmap caching in the layout editor, which should help with the out of memory exceptions people have reported (see issue 59498)
  • Fixed gradle error message output parsing from merged value xml files
  • Allow projects to be created when missing gradle dependencies
  • Fix bug in lint project handling which sometimes led to stack overflow exceptions
If you are already running Android Studio, just restart it, or manually check for updates via Help > Check for Update... (on OSX, look in the Android Studio menu).  This will download and install a small patch rather than download a full IDE image. We are not posting full installers for each weekly update. If you do not already have Android Studio, install the latest full install from . When you run that version, it will check for updates and upgrade itself via the patch mechanism.
