Exciting news: we’re only 18 weeks away from Google I/O! 2016 is going to be a special year for us -- we held our first developer day 10 years ago at the Googleplex. To celebrate our 10th anniversary of developer gatherings, we’ll be hosting I/O in our backyard at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA from May 18th - 20th. We’ll have 3 full days together to dive deep into developer content, code labs, and more. If you can’t make it in person, you can still join us via I/O Live and through an I/O Extended event in your local community. Stay tuned to #io16 and +GoogleDevelopers in the coming weeks for more details.

This week on The #DevShow, join +Timothy Jordan for a beefy TL;DR with a bunch of great links that range from AlphaGo's big match to the Chrome 48 Beta. Plus, +Reto Meier interrupts a “laser sword” duel, to let us know “Who's Doing What Now” with the new Incremental Build feature in Android Studio 2.0.

Android Studio  - 
 
Android Studio 2.0 Beta 4 is now available in the canary channel, fixing a handful of bugs reported against the previous candidate build. Please note that in this build, the "Instant Run" settings are all restored to defaults. Go to Settings > Build, Execution, Deployment > Instant Run if you want to tweak them again.

The reason we had to do this is that these settings are (currently) actually per project settings, not per user. But this is not what many users expected (so they'd tweak the settings in one project and then be surprised when in another project the values were different). So we've now turned the settings into global settings instead. However, that moves the storage location for the settings, which is why the values are all reset.

For more information about the fixes included, see

Testing App Standby

App Standby is happening. To apps like yours, all across the world. So it helps to know what that means for your app. And that means, dear developer, that you need to test your app. The docs tell you everything you need to know about the new idle modes in Marshmallow. (http://goo.gl/JadYpo) But I’m happy to call out the important bits, for everyone who loves a 2-minute summary.

So watch the video, and read the blog post (https://goo.gl/8sCdVE), and continue to #BuildBetterApps.

I hate android it has been nothing but problems for me I say it is just games for people. To use it to play with your mind it is just money hungry no matter how much you reset the phone the more it does not work I just. Want all my money back all I have done is pay for someone else to have all the fun with my phone it really posses me off cause I have kids that I cant talk to all the apps are bs and when I call all they want is more money for it to work. Just the same

We've just released Android Studio 2.0 Beta 2 to the canary channel (and new Gradle plugin to jcenter.) If all goes well, we'll roll it out to the beta channel soon -- but we'd really appreciate some extra testing on this. We think we've fixed the main issues around the new Gradle plugin and instant run (we've fixed the big performance regression on full builds, dagger2 and annotation processor should work again, plus several other critical fixes.) As always, we appreciate your help in testing preview builds!

More details about the fixes in the release notes:

+David Herman Thanks but I have already done that but I wanted to fine out what is the issue, am I the only person facing it? And is there a solution because I cant be downloading canary build all the time. Updating is the best all the time ;)

Activity Revival and the case of the Rotating Device
Pro-tip by +Joanna Smith

Where’s the data?? If you want to make sure your Activity state will survive a config change, you’ll need to do a bit of work. (Not too much, though.)

Check the blog post (https://goo.gl/LwUKIg) for more information than you ever believed you’d need, and use it to

+Roman Medvid android:id or View.setId() — what matters is that it's there before config change and after.
+Csaba Antal Golubov I know that feel, same story with clipToPadding/clipChildren attributes here.
