This is as reported by techchrunch.com:
The vast majority of Android developers use Google’s own Android Studio integrated development environment (IDE). Google offered a first look at what Android Studio 3.0 will look like. Most of these upcoming features are now available in the Android Studio early release channel.
As Google director of product management Stephanie Saad Cuthbertson told me, the company has only been increasing its investment in Android Studio since its launch four years ago. The theme of this release is “speed and smarts,” Cuthbertson noted. That means the IDE itself now allows developers to write their applications faster and it helps developers to better profile their applications to make them faster, too.
In practice, that means that Android Studio now has a full suite of profiling tools that help developers better diagnose performance issues in their apps. This allows developers to profile CPU, memory and network activity for their apps and see the details for all of these on a timeline that is automatically mapped to touch events, key presses and other events in the applications.
Another area Google focused on was to speed up the build time for complex projects. With this release, Gradle build speeds are significantly faster. The team tested this with projects that use more than a hundred modules, and Cuthbertson noted that for these highly complex projects, build times can go from minutes to seconds.
Android Studio 3.0 will also include a feature that will make it easier to debug any APK, no matter whether it was written in Java with Android Studio or with another tool or in a language like C++ (APK is the format Google uses for packaging Android apps). It also features an improved APK analyzer that helps developers optimize the size of their APKs, for example, by reducing the file size of images and other compressible assets, among other things.
With this release, Android Studio now also offers support for Instant Apps, Google’s format for allowing developers to break their applications into smaller pieces that can run individually and be loaded in seconds, right from its search results pages. To do this, developers have to break their applications into different modules — and Android Studio now supports this.
It’s worth noting that until now, access to Instant Apps — and distribution of their apps — was only available to a small number of developers. This project is now open to all developers.
Other new features in this release include support for Java 8 language features and APIs, an improved layout editor, support for adaptive icons in Android O and XML fonts and downloadable fonts, support for Android Things, updated system images for Android O (which is now in beta), Google Play store support in the emulator and support for Android Wear rotary controls in emulator.
Google also today announced that it is making Kotlin a first-class language for writing Android apps. This first preview of Android Studio 3.0 already includes full support for this new language.
From the Kotlin Blog:
Today, at the Google I/O keynote, the Android team announced first-class support for Kotlin. We believe this is a great step for Kotlin, and fantastic news for Android developers as well as the rest of our community. We’re thrilled with the opportunities this opens up.
For Android developers, Kotlin support is a chance to use a modern and powerful language, helping solve common headaches such as runtime exceptions and source code verbosity. Kotlin is easy to get started with and can be gradually introduced into existing projects, which means that your existing skills and technology investments are preserved.
Starting now, Android Studio 3.0 ships with Kotlin out of the box, meaning Android developers no longer need to install any extras or worry about compatibility. It also means that moving forward, you can rest assured that both JetBrains and Google will be supporting Android development in Kotlin.
In case you are concerned about other platforms that Kotlin supports (Kotlin/JVM for server and desktop, Kotlin/JS and Kotlin/Native), please be sure that they are as important for us as ever. Our vision here is to make Kotlin a uniform tool for end-to-end development of various applications bridging multiple platforms with the same language. This includes full-stack web applications, Android and iOS clients, embedded/IoT and much more.
Programming languages are just like human ones: the more people speak a language, the better. First-class support on Android will likely bring more users to Kotlin, and we expect the community to grow significantly. This means more libraries and tools developed in/for Kotlin, more experience shared, more Kotlin job offerings, more learning materials published, and so on. We are excited to see the Kotlin ecosystem flourish!
We will be partnering with Google to create a non-profit foundation for Kotlin. Language development will continue to be sponsored by JetBrains, and the Kotlin team (over 40 people and second largest team at the company) will operate as usual. Andrey Breslav remains the Lead Language Designer, and Kotlin will be developed under the same principles as before. We’ll keep our design processes open, because your feedback is critical for us in moving Kotlin in the right direction.
If you’re at Google I/O, make sure you stop by one of the Kotlin talks on the schedule. And of course, don’t forget to register for KotlinConf in San Francisco in November. It will be an amazing event!
A Big Thank You!When we started the journey with Kotlin over 6 years ago, we aimed at creating a language that would be in line with the same principles that drive our tools – create something that helps developers with the tedious and mundane tasks, allowing them to focus on what’s truly important. And of course make the process as enjoyable and fun as possible.
We want to thank Google and the Android team for their trust in Kotlin, but above all we want to thank you, our community, our users. Without you Kotlin wouldn’t be where it is today. Thank you for accompanying us during this journey and we hope you join us for the exciting road ahead.
Frequently Asked QuestionsWe’ve prepared answers to a series of questions that you may have in regard to this announcement. If your question is not covered, please feel free to ask us in the comments. If you are new to Kotlin, make sure you check out the FAQ on the web site where you can learn more about the basics.
Is Kotlin going to become primarily focused on Android?One of Kotlin’s goals is to be a language that is available on multiple platforms and this will always be the case. We’ll keep supporting and actively developing Kotlin/JVM (server-side, desktop and other types of applications), and Kotlin/JS. We are working on Kotlin/Native for other platforms such as macOS, iOS and IoT/embedded systems.
How does this impact Kotlin’s release cycles?Kotlin will continue to have its own independent release cycle from that of Android or Android Studio. The projects remain completely independent. Obviously there will be close collaboration between the product teams to make sure that Kotlin is always working correctly in Android Studio.
Who’s going to work on the Android Studio plugin?JetBrains will continue to work on the Android Studio plugin, collaborating closely with the Android Studio team.
Will this affect the support for IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse or Netbeans?No. Kotlin continues to be a language that targets multiple platforms and support for other IDE’s will continue to be provided as before. Obviously emphasis will be placed on IntelliJ IDEA with hopefully community contributions on the other ones.
Will this affect support for macOS or iOS?No. We still have plans to support both of these systems with Kotlin/Native and nothing has changed in this regard.
Is JetBrains going to be acquired by Google?No. JetBrains has no plans of being acquired by any company. JetBrains is and continues to be an independent tool vendor catering to developers regardless of their platform or language of choice.
It is unclear how long this is going to be free and maybe forever, who knows.
In either case for someone that wants it does not hurt to try it out...
edjing PRO - Music DJ mixer
So a little spring sale for anyone that is interested. Personally think that SunVox and Virtual ANS are both great and Pixivisor is one esoteric piece of code that would be very sad to not have access to on special occasions.
The sale finish the 21:st...
Aways thought it strange that there was no good gguitar tab editors and the last year gave up looking for one. Even Guitar Pro is more for playback and browsing for songs than editing, it is possible but in a roundabout way that is not very user friendly. The other ones lack seriously in many ways (unless there is some newer options that I missed outside of this one).
This one looks very decent. Did install it but my phone broke and my tablet is in Spain and me in Sweden at the moment so have not tried it but the user reviews are positive and it looks good, clean and straight forward.
Looking forward to use it as soon as possible.

Guess to celebrate the new collaboration inbetween Planeth-h (The developer of the G-Stomper family of apps) and Lucid Samples.
Remember VA-Beast (included in G-Stomper Studio as well as standalone) is the only sampler that allows to build velocity layered sample instruments.
VA-Beast Basic Nord Synths 1
VA-Beast Basic Nord Synths 2
This free add-on is part of a big collection of Nord Synths from Lucid Samples. The pack provides 33 finest VA-Beast Synthesizer Presets, based on 11 multi sampled sounds of the great Nord Lead 3 Hardware Synthesizer.
The sounds have been recorded using a method prepared for this recording exclusively to achieve warm sounds with full vitality.
Each multi sampled sound comes with 2 additional variations, created in use of the VA-Beast modulation framework.
After the new update there is a new preset bank to buy as in-app purchase. It sounds like this:
Here is also a video showcasing possibilities when it comes to the new functions.
"There is polyphonic aftertouch now! wich means, every played note get its own filtercurve, pitch or whatever you select via aftertouch! i use a cme xkey air to benefit from the synths possibillity. in this video i show some userpatches i created in the last 4 months. some i.e. at 3:00 demonstrating polyphonic aftertouch rather well! you hear only the synth with its internal fx! have fun!"
Guess that is an idea?
Here is what they say:
