Android Studio 1.2 Preview 3 Available

We've released Android Studio 1.2 Preview 3 to the canary channel. This fixes several bugs in Android Studio, and also updates the underlying IntelliJ 14.1 platform to pick up all the features and fixes from the following two EAP builds:

As always, please report bugs you find when testing our canary builds!

NOTE: Due to a bug, "Update & Restart" downloads the patch, but does not actually restart. Just manually exit the IDE, and start it again. Once you do that, the patch will be installed and the IDE updated.

You can use the update mechanism to update 1.2 alpha 1 to 1.2 alpha 3, as well as from 1.1 (stable), provided you are using the canary 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 alpha 3 note that this will replace your current installation, and you'll probably want to keep a stable version around until we reach beta. Therefore, you can also go to the Android Studio 1.2 Preview 3 page and download a separate copy of this build and unzip it next to your 1.1 installation.

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