Rename package in Android Studio

Questions : How do you rename packages in the new IDE Android Studio, based on IntelliJ IDEA?

Is there an automatic refactoring included?

I want to make bulk refactoring, but I don’t know how. I worked two years with Eclipse and in Eclipse it’s a one-click operation.
