Android Studio 1.2 Preview 4 Available

We've released Android Studio 1.2 Preview 4 to the canary channel. This updates the IDE to use the final release of IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 which was released yesterday. Take a look at the blog announcement of the release, and the list of What's New. Relative to our last canary build of Android Studio 1.2, this incorporates the following 3 EAP builds: 141.175.3,  141.176.5 and 141.177.4.

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

NOTE: Due to a bug, if you are patching from a version older than preview 3, clicking on "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 1/2/3 to 1.2 alpha 4 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 4 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 4 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.
