In order to improve the experience of Android developers, Google updates Android Studio very frequently. Usually, these are no more than minor enhancements and bug fixes. However, in early April 2016, Android Studio's version number jumped from 1.5 to 2.0. This was a major update, and with it came a lot of brand-new features and under-the-hood optimizations.
