How to install Android Studio 3.0 Released on Ubuntu

  Android Studio is the official Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Android app development, based on IntelliJ IDEA . On top of IntelliJ's powerful code editor and developer tools, Android Studio offers even more features that enhance your productivity when building Android apps

Android Studio 3.0 changelog:
  • Support for Android 8.0.
  • Support for building separate APKs based on language resources.
  • Support for Java 8 libraries and Java 8 language features (without the Jack compiler).
  • Support for Android Test Support Library 1.0 (Android Test Utility and Android Test Orchestrator).
  • Improved ndk-build and cmake build speeds.
  • Improved Gradle sync speed.
  • AAPT2 is now enabled by default.
  • Using ndkCompile is now more restricted. You should instead migrate to using either CMake or ndk-build to compile native code that you want to package into your APK. To learn more, read Migrate from ndkcompile.
