Android Studio IDE 188.8.131.52 Build 143.2609919 Beta 5 | 338 MB
Android Studio is an Integrated Development Editor developed by Google for the Android platform, comprising everything that a programmer needs in order to design and test Android applications. It was inspired by JeBrains’s IntelliJ IDEA, a general purpose IDE that encases a state-of-the-art collection of tools for code writing and testing. Android Studio bundles the richness of IntelliJ combined with the capabilities that are required for Android development.
Android Studio is a new Android development environment based on IntelliJ IDEA. Similar to Eclipse with the ADT Plugin, Android Studio provides integrated Android developer tools for development and debugging. On top of the capabilities you expect from IntelliJ, Android Studio offers:
• Gradle-based build support.
• Android-specific refactoring and quick fixes.
• Lint tools to catch performance, usability, version compatibility and other problems.
• ProGuard and app-signing capabilities.
• Template-based wizards to create common Android designs and components.
• A rich layout editor that allows you to drag-and-drop UI components, preview layouts on multiple screen configurations, and much more.
• Built-in support for Google Cloud Platform, making it easy to integrate Google Cloud Messaging and App Engine as server-side components.

New in version 184.108.40.206 Build 143.2609919 Preview Beta 5 (February 17, 2016):
This build fixes a couple of important bugs related to instant run:
• Turn off Gradle's javac incremental compilation in all scenarios. In previous builds we had turned it off when using annotation processors, but it turns out there are still some bugs where resource constant field changes are not propagated correctly, which led to runtime crashes after restarting the app. This may sound like a big performance sacrifice, but it's not: the javac stage is typically a small part of the build (which is dominated by dex and adb push and install) -- and note version 1.5.x of the Gradle plugin wasn't using incremental javac compilation at all.
• Change the way the app is restarted after making an incompatible change (a "coldswap"). The technique we were using resulted in some state being persisted across app runs, which could lead to crashes or unexpected intent data.
The release is available in the canary channel, so you can switch to that channel (if necessary) and check for updates via Help > Check for Update... (on OSX, look in the Android Studio menu). This will download and install a patch rather than download a full IDE image. Note however that if you do this, you will replace your existing 1.5 installation, which you may not want to do. Just keep 1.5 and 2.0 Beta installed side by side; they already use separate settings and cache directories.
Using Multiple Android Studio Versions
It's possible to have multiple versions of Android Studio installed simultaneously. When we offer canary builds (or even beta builds) of the next version of the IDE, you may want to install the new version without replacing your existing stable install.
Android Studio stores its settings in version specific folders; the exact locations depend on the operating system (and the versions of the IDE), but for example, if you have both Android Studio 1.5.1 and Android Studio 2.0 Preview 1 installed, these will consult settings in
Therefore, once you've installed the two versions, you can use them, even side by side, and they should not interfere with each other. (Note however that newer versions of the may change some of the configuration data in your projects (such as code style settings in .idea).
Note that on OSX, you typically install by just dragging the "Android Studio" app from the DMG folder to your Applications folder. Doing so will cause it to replace the previous install with the new install. To avoid this, rename your existing app first, for example from "Android Studio" to "Android Studio 1.5".
