Eclipse Mercurial Plugin doesn't work in Kinetis Design Studio v3.2

Hi all,


I am trying to work with a mercurial repository in Kinetis Design Studio v3.2, the same way I am using it in other eclipse based development environments.


The install of the eclipse plugin "MercurialEclipse" (Provider MericurialEclipse project) succeeded the same way as observed in other eclipse based development environments. In the Installation Details of KDS, I can see that the Mercurial plugin is installed:

My problem therefore does not concern the install itself but the plugin behaviour in KDS.

Sadly I am not able to open any kind of Mercurial view via Window->Show View->Other...

because the Mercurial views are not available in this selection:


Furthermore the possibility to use mercurial via "Open Perspective" doesn't work, because the slection for mercurial is missing here as well:


As you can see, in the Eclipse Preferences, Mercurial is also missing in the Team-folder:



I tried to reinstall the plugin multiple times and also tested the behaviour with a freshly installed kinets design studio on a windows vm, but the problem still persists.


Compared against an other eclipse based development environment (ARM DS-5), the described approach leads to the expected mercurial views as desired.


Did anyone face the same or a similar problem with KDS?



With kinds regards,
