[Edited Feb 4th: We've released a new build ("beta 2") which fixes the beta 1 blocking bug. Please see the beta 2 announcement.]
[Edited Feb 3rd: We just discovered a potential blocker in this build. We're pulling the update until we've verified (or fixed) the issue.]
We've just pushed Android Studio 2.0 Beta to the canary channel -- along with 2.0.0-beta1 of the Gradle plugin to jcenter. If all goes well, we'll roll it out to the beta channel within a couple of days.
This build contains only critical bug fixes relative to 2.0 Preview 9 from last week.
Thanks for testing our preview builds, and please continue reporting bugs! (via Help > Submit Feedback.)
You can update your current 2.0 Preview installation to 2.0 Beta via the built-in patch mechanism (Check for Updates).
You can also update from 1.5 to 2.0 Beta via the patch mechanism, but you may not want to do that: See our page about how to keep multiple installations simultaneously while Studio is in preview mode.
You can also download a full zip of 2.0 Beta from the Android Studio 2.0 Beta page.
If you run into problems, be sure to check the Known Issues page which we'll update as necessary.
