posted Apr 9, 2015, 10:47 AM by Tor Norbye
Android Studio 1.2 Beta 2 is now available in the beta update channel!

Relative to the Beta 1 release last week, this build contains only a small set of important bug fixes:
  • Fixed bug which caused Gradle sync to not run until manually invoked at least once. This resulted in lots of unresolved/red symbols in the editor. (Issue 163270)
  • Fixed "Import Settings" bug which prevented settings from 1.0/1.1 to be imported into 1.2 on Windows and Linux (issue 160023)
  • Detect when the ibus-daemon is used on Linux and point to page with information for working around keyboard related issues
  • Fixed import from Eclipse project to move resource files from source folders into src/main/resources such that they are packaged correctly for runtime (issue 144355
  • Fixed symbol resolution for libraries that bundle artifacts (issue 161537), and correctly set dependencies on AARs exposed as artifacts (issue 162634)
  • Fixed bug where creating a new project had no visible feedback for 5-10 seconds (issue 162620)
  • Fixed bug where the IDE would hang if the Messages window had errors (issue 152828)
  • Fixed incorrect window parenting in the AVD manager (issue 163063)
  • Fixed a couple of bugs in the Android Wear templates (hardcoded package name, and incorrect wear module dependency)
  • Fixed vmoptions parsing order on Linux
If you encounter bugs, please follow these instructions to report them. 

You can use the update mechanism to update from earlier builds of 1.2 as well as from version 1.1 (stable). Note that the build is only available in the beta channel, not the stable channel, so if you are not offered the update you need to switch to the beta channel (to change channels, open the preference dialog, go to the Updates category and change the channel setting). 

However, if you update from 1.1 to 1.2 beta 2 note that this will replace your current installation. You can keep 1.1 and 1.2 installed side by side (they use separate settings directories) so you can go to the Android Studio 1.2 Beta page and download a separate installation if you prefer. If you patch update to 1.2 and want to go back or have both installed, you can also Download Android Studio 1.1.

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