What’s New in Local 8.2.0


  • PHP 8.3 is available for both new and existing sites! Users can create a new site with the latest PHP release or switch an existing site to it from the PHP version dropdown in the Site Overview.
  • New Okta/OAuth flow for Connect to WP Engine - WP Engine customers will now login to the WP Engine portal with their username and password in a browser and Local will handle the rest! Users no longer have to generate and then copy and paste API keys.
  • WP Engine SSH keys will be automatically created and deleted on the user’s behalf. When logging out from WP Engine inside Local, Local will delete the associated SSH keys both on the user’s machine and from the WP Engine user portal to prevent unused or abandoned SSH keys from sticking around.
  • Accessibility - Improve markup, headings, and landmark labels to make content within the app easier to identify and navigate using assistive technology.

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved an issue that prevented macOS users running macOS 10.15 (Catalina) from successfully pushing and pulling site due to an updated version of OpenSSH. Local will use a version of OpenSSH that is compatible when it detects users are on macOS Catalina.
  • Fixes a bug that had caused the clickable region of external links inside Local to be extremely small; no more hunting for where to click!
