What’s New in Local Beta 5.7.5


  • WordPress 5.5 introduced a new wp_get_environment_type() function that retrieves a site’s current environment type. Using this function while developing in Local will now return a value of local. See more info here.


  • We’ve greatly improved the speed of Instant Reload!
  • Local Hub now notifies users in the case their browser is not supported.

Bug fixes

  • Resolved an edge-case where WP Engine users could push to a site with no environments.
  • Users can now navigate away from the overview screen as a newly created site is in process to view to other sites.
  • Resolved an issue for WP Engine users where Local would assume the remote site had a database causing an error.
  • Fixed styling issue on Live Links Pro popup
  • Fixed an authentication issue for Pro users that would require navigating away from Pro features and back to accurately reflect logged in/out state.
