I found Scott Guthrie's tutorial about this tool and installed it immediatelly. My bad surprize was that I can only crawl sites hosted in my IIS. But it seems that crawling remote sites was possible in previous versions. Why this useful option was removed?

Check the tool support page for any additional info.

It is supported to crawl remote sites, could you let us know the steps you are trying.
Basically you should do this from a Server Connection (ie select the Server node in the Tree) and using Start New Analysis will give you a textbox where you can type any URL.
If you do this from a Site node selected we auto-populate the known URLs of the site.
