Android Studio Reaches Release Candidate Status

Android app developers have a few options when comes to Android IDEs. One of the most commonly used is the Android Studio. The IntelliJ Studio has been in active development for some time now. Android Studio is nearing its first stable release. As such, the first Release Candidate has been submitted to the Canary channel.

The release can still be described as not fully functional. There are a few bugs that still need to be ironed out, but the IDE will get its stable release shortly. In addition to some bug fixes, Android Studio has a new logo that is now available on the splash screen. The release candidate comes with Maven repository bundled up, so there is no need to be online in order to create a project.

Android Studio is one of the most capable IDEs available for Android. If you haven’t had a chance to test this suite yet, this is a great time to give it a shot. All you need to do is change your update channel to Canary to get in on the release candidate status.
