Unite remote backup is not working in 1.3.0

It skips over the remote step despite the <package from="remote"></package> entry.

The problem seems to be in engine/steps/remote.php:39

$packageFrom = $this->siteDef['siteInfo']['packageFrom']->value;

20140901|08:03:20|PHP NOTICE on line 39 in file /opt/unite/engine/step/remote.php:
20140901|08:03:20|Trying to get property of non-object

Indeed that is not an object ;)

So removing -> value fixes the issue.

FYI I've tried the following PHP versions in my testing:
