According to a blogpost by Android Studio Product Manager Jamal Eason:

 The goal is to ensure Android Studio continues to help you stay productive in making great apps for Android. Since the last stable release, Android Studio 3.3 addresses over 200 user- reported bugs. This release also includes official support for Navigation Editor, improved incremental Java compilation when using annotation processors, C++ code lint inspections, an updated new project wizard, and usability fixes for each of the performance profilers. In addition, saving snapshots on exit for the Android emulator is 8x faster.

Android Studio 3.3 related to an initiative called Project Marble that was announced by Google late last year during the Android Developer Summit in November 2018.

Project Marble is the Android Studio team’s:

“focus on making the fundamental features and flows of the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) rock-solid, along with refining and polishing the user-facing features that matter to you in your day-to-day app development workflows.” Source
