Android Studio 0.4.6 Released

posted Feb 19, 2014, 6:04 PM by Tor Norbye
We've just released Android Studio 0.4.6 to the canary channel, with the following improvements:
  • Bug fixes. This is primarily a bug fix release from Android Studio 0.4.5 released five days ago. In particular, the Gradle sync editor notifications should be fixed now, as well as issues around switching language levels.
  • Source and documentation attachments. If you have plain Java library dependencies (for example on Guava or Joda-time), the Gradle sync will now automatically discover the associated source code and use those for the libraries, which makes javadoc popups work in code completion, which makes parameter documentation and suggested parameter names better, and so on. (Source attachments for AAR libraries is not yet working.)
  • Improvements to the project, activity and fragment templates:
    • The Blank Activity template no longer includes a fragment by default; there is a separate navigation type which will include it:
    • There is a new option to add Google+ login to the Login Activity template (New > Activity)

      Similarly, there is a new "+1" fragment template.] (New > Android Component)
    • Some additional clipart is included in the Asset Studio wizard

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 0.4.6 page.

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