We've just pushed Android Studio 2.1 Preview 5 to the canary channel. This build incorporates a number of Instant Run bug fixes from the 2.0 release branch (released in 2.0 Release Candidate 1 yesterday), along with a handful of 2.1-only additional fixes. A number of developers have asked what the difference is between 2.0 and 2.1. In short:
You can update your current 2.0 or 2.1 Preview installation to 2.1 Preview 5 via the built-in patch mechanism (Check for Updates). Make sure you switch to the Canary channel, if necessary.
You can also update from 1.5 to 2.1 Preview 5 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 2.1 Preview from the Android Studio 2.1 Preview 5 page.
If you run into problems, be sure to check the Known Issues page which we'll update as necessary.
