previously the README referenced using localhost with the SSH tunnel. i recently came back to it and had to figure out why 'RMATE_HOST=auto' wasn't working...
README: mention localhost for ssh tunnel example
I’m a little confused here — localhost is the default and explicitly setting host to localhost in rmate.rc is redundant and wouldn’t override RMATE_HOST or a potential --host argument.
ah, the issue is with rmate 1.4, where the default is auto. the rmate link in the preference pane of my Texmate, build 9311, points to rmate 1.4... shouldn't it be the latest?
It should, and it will with next build :)
Setting the default to auto was a recent pull request that I decided to revert ~4 days ago (just after doing the last public build).
I did like your overall README changes so I’ll just pull and reword slightly.
