Android Studio 0.9.0 Released

posted Oct 31, 2014, 10:39 AM by Tor Norbye
We've just released Android Studio 0.9.0 to the canary channel!

This release adds support for the new version of the Android Gradle plugin, 0.14.0, also released today. In addition, there are a number of bug fixes, particularly in the AVD manager (which now also provides builtin emulator skins for the Nexus devices.)

Please note that the new version of the IDE requires the new version of the Gradle plugin, and vice versa, so when you update your projects will fail to sync with this error message:
For most users, simply clicking on the Fix hyperlink will be enough; this will update your build files to reference the new 0.14.0 Gradle plugin version instead, which will then be downloaded and installed. However, there have been some changes to the plugin APIs, so you may need to tweak your build files (and if you are using third-party Gradle plugins, they may need to be updated). For more information on how to update your projects, see the release notes for 0.14.0, and for more details the Android Gradle plugin user guide.

If you are already running Android Studio version 0.8.12 or later, 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 are using an older version, you'll need to download a full install from the downloads page.

NOTE: 0.9.0 is currently only available in the canary channel, and Android Studio Beta will by default only look for updates in the beta channel, so if you want to update, open the preference dialog, go to the Updates category and change the channel setting.

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