Bug Fixes

  • Connect to Flywheel compatibility check now waits for MySQL before checking if WordPress is installed. This should resolve the issue where the checker will say the site doesn’t have WordPress installed.
  • Fixed PHP upgrade notice that would errantly show when pushing to a Flywheel site running PHP 7.2
  • Fixed issue where the Upgrade Environment button would not work unless you were on the site’s Overview/Setup tab

Third-party Dependencies

  • Updated Electron to v2.0.8
