Android Studio 0.5.6 Released

posted Apr 24, 2014, 3:43 PM by Tor Norbye
We've just released Android Studio 0.5.6 with the following improvements:
  • Bug fixes for several critical bugs reported in 0.5.5. Thanks for your help!
  • Improvements to the build.gradle file editor support. Code completion, show documentation and go to declaration is now smarter (though it is still slow, so wait a second or two for results, and it still includes some "noise" in the form of base Groovy methods). Properties now show up (but for documentation, look up the corresponding getter for now.)
  • New templates: A Google Play Services template, new templates for creating folders for various types of sources (such as .java files, JNI, XML resources, etc), and the BlankActivity wizard was split into separate activities - a blank activity, a blank fragment activity, a tabbed activity, and a navigation drawer activity:
  • Gradle sync errors are now displayed in the Message window rather than in transient popup balloons, and the message window can contain hyperlinks with quickfixes to resolve problems
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 0.5.6 page.

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