Android Studio 1.2 Beta is now available in the beta update channel!
Version 1.2 updates Android Studio to be based on IntelliJ 14.1.1, released earlier this week. Relative to Android Studio 1.1, this means the IDE picks up all the new features from IntelliJ 14 and 14.1, such as
There are some Android-specific enhancements as well:
You can continue to use version 1.0 and version 1.1 of the Gradle plugin with Android Studio 1.2 (as well as the recently released 1.2-beta version).
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 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.
