We've just released Android Studio 0.5.3, with the following improvements:
  • Updated the bundled IntelliJ IDE to 13.1.1, picking up the following bugs since our last build: 13.1.1 Release Notes
  • Gradle Support
    • You can now import modules into existing projects. (Module deletion is coming soon.)
    • When there are errors during sync/import, these are no longer only displayed in a transient popup balloon; they are written to the Messages window.

      (NOTE: Make sure you select the tab "Gradle Sync", not "Gradle Tasks". We'll make it open automatically in an upcoming build.)
    • The build variants window now shows conflicting variants.
  • Templates
    • When creating new activities you can choose which source set to write the activity into:
    • Rather than a single catch-all "Android Component" template dialog, the available templates are now offered as a nested set of menus such that you can quickly pick templates by category:
  • Many bug fixes

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 0.5.3 page.

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