Android Question

Is app-release.apk zipaligned apk?

I am using Android Studio 1.0.2.
When I click assembleRelease in gradle tasks, two files are generated, app-release-unaligned.apk and app-release.apk. I know app-release-unaligned.apk is unaligned but what is app-release.apk? Is it aligned apk? My build.gradle is like below.

buildTypes {
release {
minifyEnabled true
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-project.txt'
signingConfig signingConfigs.config
zipAlignEnabled true // Is this necessary or not in Android Studio 1.0.2?

Even if I didn't put zipAlignEnabled true, app-release.apk is generated.
Is it still necessary in Android Studio 1.0.2?
All information I get about zipalign is before Android Studio 1.0 comes out.

It is both aligned and signed. Ready for publication.

AFAIK zipAlignEnabled is true by default for release builds.
