Layout preview refining

There are few improvements since the last week in my current branch. It is possible to render some layouts using custom view classes and customize the view to display output according to selected device configuration and Android version. Also there is a possibility to switch language and region settings, landscape/portrait and dock modes. The whole thing seems more stable now.
What remains on my list to be done before I create first public version:

  • Polish the UI (including error reporting when something goes wrong because there are plenty of ways how things can end up badly).
  • Theme support for platform and project themes.
  • Better integration with the editor to be able to update after save or possibly as you type.
Things that will be part of future updates:

  • Fragment support.
  • Maven project support (if there is demand).
  • Zooming in preview.
