Warning, backup your eclipse workspace folder and platform-tools, and  the tools folder before trying this preview of the r14 release.  That being said we now have some improvements in the ant incremental build to the point where its fully implemented.

Examine the improved features list as you may find that the improvements warrant using now before the final release. Obviously, MotoStudio users cannot update yet until the actual r14 release.

Okay, an example of improvements, logcat:

 

Notice that the filters appear on a left panel and filters now support java regexes.  It means those of using extra tools such as Plogcat no longer have to do so.

 

The SDK manager has been improved:

A nice and simple UI that you can immediately view and see what is installed.

 

Okay, doing my backup and downloading the preview so that I can play.
