Pull site from WPEngine doesn't work
I had a fresh install of Local, within a Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon, cinamon version 4.6.7, and linux kernel 5.4.0-54-generic. The installation wen smoothly, but when I try to pull a site, it finishes the process without problem, but when I goes to the place where the codebase should be, there is no codebase, just some empty folders.
Mac High Sierra - Local hangs on "Starting up Site Services"
Users running High Sierra are unable to create new sites in Local. The general issue appears to be related to not being able to connect to MySQL. This was first reported in this Community Forum post: https://localwp.com/community/t/mac-high-sierra-local-hangs-on-starting-up-site-services/21462?u=ben.turner A workaround does exist: While creating a new site that is hanging Create a second, throw-away site By creating the second site, the first site is able to finish creating, and the second site is able to be deleted without any issues.

Wildcard SSL certificate not being created for subdomain Multisite
This was first reported in this Forum post: https://localwp.com/community/t/ssl-for-multisite-not-working/11090 To replicate: Create a new WordPress Subdomain Multisite within Local Log into the WP admin for the site and create at least one subsite Within Local, click the "Sync Multi-site Domains to Hosts file" Click the "Trust" button for the site's SSL certificate Navigate to the subsite's url over HTTPS and examine the certificate. Note that the certificate does not cover the subsite because there is not wild-card certificate. This is a regression since previous versions of Local did create this wildcard certificate (see attached screenshots taken from the forum thread)
Broken Link Checker needs pagination/scrolling for large numbers of links
Customers are not able to use the broken link checker when there is a large number of broken links. The page does not allow them to scroll. Here's an example: https://flywheelhelp.zendesk.com/agent/tickets/14439559 ask: https://wpengine.slack.com/archives/C0193JM9Y4C/p1602707014085300
Imagick is unable to work with PDFs (WordPress PDF thumbnails cannot be generated)
When using PHP 7.4.1 on macOS and Windows (Linux unconfirmed), WordPress is unable to generate PDF thumbnails. When calling Imagick directly to read a PDF, PHP errors/warnings are shown. This appears to be a compilation/bundling issue on Local's end.
http (rather than https) being set when pushing to WPE Staging
When I push my site from Local to WPE Staging, the search-replace process is setting all my URLs as http://mysite.wpengine.com rather than https://mysite.wpengine.com . This is causing issues with some of my plugins when running on the staging environment. Note that I'm NOT using https in the Local environment, so perhaps that's a factor. But regardless of what I'm using locally, it seems the final URLs on WPE Staging should be converted to https automatically during the push process.
