The release includes two major additions:
Espresso-Intents: a Mockito-like API that enables hermetic inter-activity testing by allowing test authors to verify and stub outgoing intents.
Test Rules: a set of Junit4 rules that replace ancient framework APIs like ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2 and ServiceTestCase.
All samples have been updated and a set of Espresso-Intents samples has been added to help you get started.
Of course, we have also squashed some reported bugs and addressed minor feature requests from android-test-kit. See release notes and javadoc for details.
Happy testing from the ATSL team and
Will your app run on a 4 year old device with a poor data connection?
I actually just made this for my team, but it turned out a lot of other people in the company could use it, so I thought other people might find it useful too.

You’d be surprised how much we can pack into a 0.1 update to the Android Support Library: revision 22.1 includes improvements to Support V4, AppCompat, Leanback, RecyclerView, Palette, and Renderscript.
Support V4 adds drawable tinting to all API4+ devices, the new ColorUtils class makes working with colors easier, and new interpolators have been added to make great animations.
AppCompat gets a remake as we deprecate ActionBarActivity for the new AppCompatActivity, now built on a AppCompatDelegate that can be used to add AppCompat functionality to any Activity. There’s also a new AppCompatDialog, support version of AlertDialog, improvements to widget tinting, and expanded android:theme support.
Leanback now includes a guided step functionality, making it easy to build a multiple step process that looks great on Android TV.
RecyclerView seeks to make life easier with a new SortedList data structure, making it easy to tie a changing set of data to a RecyclerView.Adapter.
Palette is now 6-8 times faster and has a new Builder pattern for constructing Palette instances.
Renderscript improved reliability and performance and adds additional script intrinsic operations, bringing new pre-defined operations to all API 8+ devices.
Check out everything that has been added in this release and download the updated Android Support Library via the Android SDK Manager.
