Android Studio 0.2.4 Released, Improvements for App Devs
Back at Google I/O 2013, Android Studio was released in beta form. The tool, which was released with the help of Jetbrains and based on IntelliJ, featured various “killer features” such as live rendering of your code and the ability to easily add any API into your code.
Since then, we’ve talked a little about it, including troubleshooting tips for setup and a graphing library compatible with the tool. Now, version 0.2.4 has been released, bringing with it several key improvements, including:
- XML attribute documentation
- The ability to jump between a layout and its associated activity
- The ability to create missing onClick handlers
- Improvements to the Gradle synchronization
- Improvements to layout editing and various bugfixes
To get your Android Studio updated, you simply have to restart it or manually check for updates (Help -> Check for Updates). To learn more about exactly what was changed, head over to the Android Tools Project Site.
