Yes, this was one of the features we already planned to implement in 2010. Back then, I stated that "this is planned for one of the future releases". And it actually was. Unfortunately, SSH port forwarding was not a priority and got postponed several times when our near-term plans changed. Now, five years later, we already have a beta, but I won't repeat the same mistake again and I can only say that when we are done with the testing, it will be published with the following release.
