What’s New in Android Studio 3.2 Beta 5 Update?

Changing behaviour

This version update now includes a minimum Protobuf Gradle plugin version of 0.8.6. This GradleComment Plugin compiles Protocol Buffer (aka. Protobuf) definition files (*.proto) into any project.

In addition to this change, some bug fixes in this Beta 5 release include:

  • Lines in the translation editor are now properly aligned after scrolling
  • Running another project using GradleBuild caused java.lang.IllegalMonitorStateException: Attempting to unlock read lock, not locked by current thread. This bug has now been fixed.
  • Layout styles that incorrectly required API level 17 instead of 15 are now fixed.
  • Fixed Android Studio not correctly navigating to certain styles with error message: “Could not find declaration to access”.
  • Linter now correctly resolves some API level values.
