    What is a valid configuration of software with the new FTC code (FTC Software Development Kit v3.2)? Java 8 Update 144? Android Studio 2.3.3? Others?

    That would be dependent on what your team wants to do, it could range from Firefox/Chrome on a Chromebook to something well-suited to pretty much a hardcore low-level programmer: vim CMake, LLDB, full NDK, and Git running on a custom *nix OS. You can get as pretty much hardcore as you want to (besides Assembly, although you could probably figure out how do that to).

    But in all seriousness since it sounds like you are going to be trying Android Studio, just install Git and Android Studio and everything should work for you (Android Studio will take care of most of everything after starting up and importing the ftc_app). If you are setting this up on a system that requires IT intervention for changes, disable Android Studio's first run and use a copy of the Android SDK (already configured by a previous Android Studio instance and that will compile the ftc_app) copied to your local drive (not in any user profile) with the environment variable %ANDROID_HOME% (or $ANDROID_HOME depending on OS) pointed to it.
