What’s New in 2.0.8


  • macOS: High Sierra is now supported!
  • Windows: Faster Docker Volumes is here for Windows! Your sites on Windows should now load noticeably quicker if it’s enabled. You can enable/disable Faster Docker Volumes in Preferences » Advanced.
    • Faster Docker Volumes is disabled by default on Windows and enabled by default on macOS
    • You will see a local-flywheel Windows users for the SMB share. The credentials are completely randomized and the user can be removed at any time by disabling Faster Docker Volumes.

Bug Fixes

  • Local now tries to detect if the VM is shutting down instead of getting stuck on “Checking System”. This would commonly happen if you quit Local with 0 sites running and then quickly re-open Local.
  • Changed references to vboxmanage to VBoxManage to fix issues on case-sensitive file systems. This will resolve issues of Local not running on Mac’s with case-sensitive file systems.
