Android Studio 0.8.13 Released

posted Oct 17, 2014, 3:44 PM by Tor Norbye
We've just released Android Studio 0.8.13 to the canary channel.  This is primarily a bug fix release relative to 0.8.12 from last week. 
However, it does include some support for Android Lollipop and device information and art for the new Nexus devices. For example, you can create AVDs for Nexus 6 and Nexus 9:
as well as Android 5.0 Lollipop system images:
The frame-screenshot-pulled-from-device feature, and the layout editor and XML rendering preview, now also support Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 artwork:
And finally, various editing features have also been updated to be Lollipop aware (e.g. the targetSdkVersion lint check suggests using 21, the Build.VERSION_CODES codename for Lollipop is now recognized, and so on.)

You can only patch install 0.8.13 if you already have version 0.8.12.

For all older versions, you have to download a full version from the Canary download page. We know this is inconvenient, but there are technical reasons for this related to bugs we've discovered in the updater (and this is all described in detail in the release notes for 0.8.12; scroll down to the "No Patches" section.)

NOTE: 0.8.13 is currently only available in the canary channel, and Android Studio Beta will by default only look for updates in the beta channel, so if you want to update, open the preference dialog, go to the Updates category and change the channel setting.

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