    Probably one of the most bloated IDEs I've ever tried in my whole life.

      Minor point, I think this release is on Stable channel (the GPU debugger is still in beta though).

      As far as most bloated? Not sure. But the last thing I have to compare it to is Eclipse. Seems perfectly usable to me.

        Do you think PyCharm is bloated as well? Or any other Jetbrains IDEs?

        They tend to be best in class.

          You are confusing this JetBrains based one with the old Eclipse based one.

            I hope they add Java 8 and Java 9 support.
            So developers can develop using modern language constructs.

              Afaik, Java 8 is supported in Nougat. Java 9 is not out (won't be till next year) so it will be a while till we see it supported. Though Java 9 is mostly about modularizing the JDK/JRE so I don't see immediate benefits for Android there.

                Yeah, I just read that Android have partial support for Java 8 on Nougat when using the Jack compiler.

                I hope that Android soon gets full Java 8 support, and will be early to get Java 9 support as soon as possible.

                  Again, why? Which of these features do you think will make your life easier as a mobile developer? http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jdk9/
                  Also, support for Java8 being this late doesn't tell you anything about support for Java9?
