Latest MySQL versions
At the moment, 5.6 is the most recent MySQL version available for a Custom environment. But 5.6 will reach End Of Life in Feb 2021(!). So 5.7 needs to be available ASAP and we really need 8.0 to be able to create environments that mimic modern hosting.
Import/Export URL option
When you export a site to upload to a remote server, you need to run some SQL to update the site urls. It would be great to just have a step in the export process so that the exported SQL uses the remote domain. Could use the reverse for importing.
More PHP, MySQL, MariaDB versions
Hi love Local ! ... but I miss the ability to test updates for outdated client's websites. Sometimes servers doesn't have the last PHP version and we cannot anticipate an possible incompatibility. I would love to install custom PHP & DB versions. Now for exemple I want to try PHP 7.0.33 and MySQL 5.6.50 but I cannot. Maybe let us just upload manually a custom version ? I saw a lot of people interested by that feature : @rowatt : https://localwp.com/community/t/support-more-php-versions/94 , and https://localwp.com/community/t/installing-different-php-versions/519 @mrtorbert : https://localwp.com/community/t/additional-php-versions/1165 @Heliotropen : https://localwp.com/community/t/mysql-php-versions-supported/19683 @japiera : https://localwp.com/community/t/install-additional-php-versions/19455 @amanuensis : https://localwp.com/community/t/php-and-mysql-version-installs/15390 Make Local even more Amazing ! ❤️
PHP 8 support
PHP 8 is scheduled to be released November 26, 2020. There is active work being done to ensure WordPress is compatible. It would be nice if we could test using Local.
Install Local in USB or Portable drive
I work on different machines and sometimes being able to bring Local with me in my flash drive to places without internet connection is vital as writer. Please allow me to install this on a USB drive. This also allows encryption for confidential documents and such.

Support biometric auth on macOS
Local throws a few admin prompts, regularly, and I miss not being able to use Touch ID, Apple Watch, or other forms of biometric auth. Instead, I have to type in my password. Other apps/admin notices allow bio auth, so I'm not sure why Local isn't able to. Anyway, not a needed feature but it would be a fab ease-of-use improvement.
