Android Studio 0.4.5 Released

posted Feb 14, 2014, 9:03 AM by Tor Norbye
We've just released Android Studio 0.4.5 to the canary channel with the following improvements:
  • Many bug fixes for issues reported in 0.4.4 and earlier releases
  • Merged to the latest IntelliJ 13 EAP build 133.818
  • Improved Add Library Dependency editor
    • It now uses the IDE's Maven index to do much quicker searches
    • It includes libraries from the local Maven repositories such as the support library and Google Play Services
    • It includes many other commonly requested libraries
    • It has better query rewriting rules to make searches work better
  • When you edit your build.gradle files by hand, and the IDE's model is out of date, we now show an editor notification along with a link to immediately sync.
  • Support for custom manifest file locations
  • Log cat has a new option (on by default) which creates an application filter automatically such that only the launched application's output is shown
  • Editor inline resource folding for quantity strings (plurals)
  • Some new lint checks, and in particular one which flags uses of the assertion keyword. This does not work reliably on devices and you should use BuildConfig.DEBUG to do conditional checks instead.
  • The icon asset generator is much faster
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.
If you need to download a full install, visit the Android Studio Canary Build 0.4.5 page.

If you run into problems, be sure to check the Known Issues page which we'll update as necessary.
