 2.0-beta.9.1 isn't published as nightly build? Because I still have
2.0-beta.9, with the  ⌘ < / ⌘ > shortcuts.

information. For example, "mate --set-mark error:foobar --line 3  
foo.txt" will open the file "foo.txt" and set a mark at line 3 with an  
icon corresponding to "error" with the message "foobar".

The built-in runner supports marks. You can test this by creating a new  
file called "foo.rb" with the following content "class Foo". Select Ruby  
as the language and run the file using Cmd+R. You should now see a  
warning icon in the gutter, pressing the icon should show a popover with  
the text: "syntax error, unexpected end-of-input".
