Check out the new #ConstraintLayout samples on GitHub. These samples provide a great guide to some of the most advanced ConstraintLayout features, including ratios (which allows you to preserve the aspect ratio of images and other controls) and chains, which apply attributes to horizontal or vertical groups.

Android Studio 2.2 Preview now available on the canary channel

Includes a portfolio of new features along the spectrum of development, ranging from designing user interfaces to building and debugging your app in new ways.

Design
Layout Editor: A new user interface designer that helps you visually design the layouts in your app.
Constraint Layout: A new powerful and flexible Android layout that allows you to express complex UIs without nesting multiple layouts.
Layout Inspector: Debug a snapshot of your app layout running on the Android Emulator or device. Inspect the view hierarchy and corresponding attributes.

Develop
Firebase Plugin: Explore and integrate the suite of services offered by Firebase inside of Android Studio.
Enhanced Code Analysis: Check the quality of your Android app code.
Samples Browser: Referencing Android sample code is now even easier.
Improved C++ Support: Improved C++ development with the ability to edit, build, and debug pre-existing Android projects that use ndk-build or CMake rather than Gradle.
IntelliJ 2016.1: All the latest updates from the underlying JetBrains product platforms IntelliJ.

Build
Jack Compiler Improvements: Support for annotation processing, as well as incremental builds for reduced build times.
Merged Manifest Viewer: Diagnose how your AndroidManifest.xml merges with your app dependences across your project build variants.

Test
Espresso Test Recorder: Record Espresso UI tests simply by using your app as a normal user.
APK Analyzer: Drill into your APK to help you reduce your APK size, debug 64K method limit issues, view contents of Dex files and more.

Faster builds with Dex In Process in Android Studio 2.1

Android Studio 2.1 includes a new feature: Dex In Process, that can dramatically increase the speed of full clean builds as well as improving Instant Run performance.

To take advantage of Dex In Process, you’ll need to modify your gradle.properties file and increase the amount of memory allocated to the Gradle Daemon VM by 1 Gb, to a minimum of 2 Gb.

Please update to Android Studio v2.1.1

We wanted to make you aware of an important security update for Android Studio.

Today we released the Android Studio 2.1.1 update. The incremental update addresses two security vulnerabilities in the underlying IntelliJ platform that affects all previous versions of Android Studio:

Built-in WebServer Vulnerabilities: A Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) flaw in the IDE’s built-in WebServer could allow an attacker to access the local file system from a malicious web page without user consent.

Internal RPC Vulnerabilities: Over-permissive Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) settings could allow an attacker to access various internal API endpoints; gain access to data saved by the IDE; gather various meta-information, like IDE version; or open a project without permission.

We have had no reports of active customer exploitation or abuse of these newly reported issues, but it’s important that you update to this new version now.

JetBrains notified Google of two security issues that affect all versions of Android Studio and we worked together to develop a solution. These issues not only affect the Android Studio development environment but all JetBrains products built on IntelliJ Platform including IntelliJ IDEA. See JetBrains security posting here: http://blog.jetbrains.com/blog/2016/05/security-update-for-intellij-based-ides

We are offering security patches for versions 1.5.1, 2.0, and 2.1 of Android Studio to upgrade to v2.1.1. Simply go into Android Studio and check updates (Help → Check for Update [Windows/Linux] , Android Studio → Check for Updates [OS X]).

If you need to stay on Android Studio 1.5.x, we are also offering a zip file of v1.5.2, which includes the patch for the security vulnerabilities. Download the zip from Android Studio tools website (http://tools.android.com/download/studio/builds/1-5-2/) and manually install the zip package over your existing Android Studio installation.

Instant Run: How does it work?!

When something’s simple and helpful, most people are satisfied with that. But we engineers — we’re not normal people.
