Local 5.0.4 versus Local by Flywheel 3.3.0

I’m confused what is the differences between those two version?
I’m using 3.3.0 on a Mac but not sure if I should use a more recent version.
I install that most recent version but the sites from version 3.3.0 don’t show…

Local 5.0.4 is a public beta. Local by Flywheel 3.3.0 is the current release.

Hi afragen, so in that case it’s better to use the current release and wait for the final version of 5.0.4?

It definitely depends. If you’re having Virtualbox related issues, I would recommend Local 5.0.4.

Until the didn’t notice anything…

I recommend 5.0.4 also over 3 it is so much faster and already pretty stable. Be sure to export and backup your sites if you try it :slight_smile:


“pretty stable…”?
I’ve seen many issues posted about 5.0.4 and multiple people not able to see any of their previous sites in 5.0.4.

Previous sites don’t just show up. You must export them from Local by Flywheel and import them into Local 5.0.4.
