Android Studio 0.8.11 was released to the canary channel late last week. Here are some of the improvements:

- Support for the new version of Gradle 0.13 (also released late last week)

- Lint errors now display a full explanation on the line where the error occurs

- One fix I’ve heard getting a lot of praise:

The layout editor now checks to make sure that you have the latest available versions of "layoutlib". This is useful because the rendering library is actually shipped with the SDK rather than with Android Studio, so even if you are staying up to date with Android Studio canary builds, you can easily use obsolete versions of the layout library. The Android L preview rendering library in particular was recently updated, so if you do not have the latest version the IDE will check and let you know:
