Are you still using the Eclipse ADT? We want to know why. Let us know here: We want to make sure that Android Studio is improving the development process for all our Android developers.

Has anybody had any luck going from Eclipse ADT to Android Studio 2.2.2 (latest everything) using CMake with a project that has completely non-standard directory structure?

Any examples out there?

CMake and ndk-build are now supported in Android Studio 2.2 alongside the experimental Gradle plugin. Kathryn Shih, Android Product Manager, shares how this change will impact native developers, and what the future holds for native builds.

We just previewed #AndroidStudio 2.2 at #io16, another big update to the IDE designed to help you code faster with smart new tooling features built in. One of the headline features is our rewritten layout designer with the new constraint layout. In addition to helping you get out of XML to do your layouts visually, the new tools help you easily design for Android’s many great devices. Once you’re happy with a layout, we do all the hard work to automatically calculate constraints for you, so your UIs will resize automatically on different screen sizes. We’ll be diving into more detail on this update at 10AM PT tomorrow in “What’s new in Android Development Tools”, livestreamed from Google I/O:
In this session we will provide an in depth tour of the Android development tools and take a closer look at everything new - along with tips and tricks for getting the most out of them!

Understanding APK packaging in Android Studio 2.2

Think you’ve seen all Android Studio 2.2 features? We have even more surprises under the hood! The new packager and signer now supports Android APK v2 signatures, produces smaller APK files and makes development faster. If you’re doing any APK post-processing (such as recompression), you should read the blog to understand what the new packaging changes for you and how to make sure you don’t invalidate the new signature.

Read more:

+Daniele Segato Incremental releases on Play Store have always worked over the whole APK anyway, so v2 signing doesn't change anything in this regard, i.e. the binary delta between APK 1 and APK 2 that was computed on the server, when applied on the device to APK 1 produces a byte-for-byte identical copy of APK 2.

That said, we have a post in the pipeline for the developers blog about updates on the Play Store, I'm sure you will find it most interesting :) I don't know when it will be published exactly, so follow our social channels for announcements.
