Android Studio 1.1 Released

posted Feb 18, 2015, 4:10 PM by Tor Norbye   [ updated Feb 23, 2015, 11:33 AM by Michał Bendowski ]
Android Studio 1.1 is now available in the stable channel! This is primarily a bug fix release, incorporating a much larger set of bug fixes than the limited set of critical fixes we put into 1.0.1 and 1.0.2.

However, there are some notable new features:
  • Improved unit testing support! This is described in much greater detail in Note that this requires the new version of the Android Gradle plugin 1.1, also available (and bundled with the IDE for offline usage). Note also that while the new Gradle plugin is included and supported, version 1.0 continues to be supported as well, so you can update to the new version of the IDE without affecting your project files and builds.
  • Many new lint checks - run Analyze > Inspect Code to see if version 1.1 uncovers new issues in your projects
  • Templates for creating analog and digital Android Wear watch faces
  • Updated launcher icons, now packaged as mipmap resources
  • Support for BCP 47 language tags (e.g. additional 3-letter language codes when using Android 5.0); as with the improved unit testing support this requires version 1.1 of the Gradle plugin.
  • See New Build System for the Gradle plugin release notes.

You can 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 (about 19 MB from version 1.0.2) rather than download a full IDE image. 
To download a full installer for Windows or Mac, or a .zip file for Linux, visit the official Android Studio page.

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