hg4idea seems less maintained

I have just started at a Client where they had decided to use Mercurial
I ofcause installed IDEA and was happy to see hg4idea.

But my smile has become less. It seems that hg4idea is not working that perfect...
I see that comments are back from 2010 etc.

I cannot read history from the repository. I get an error message.
And this is sad. Because IDEA's history browser in JIT and SVN is second to NONE...

I am in the process of getting my client to use IDEA (50-100 new users).. And it would be nice to be able to show a winner case here....

I will try to collect the missings in hg4idea..

Hi Anders,

Mercurial integration in IntelliJ is a bit behind Git and SVN indeed.
However, we are trying hard to make it better.
A lot of new features and bugfixes will be available in IntelliJ IDEA 13, so I encourage you to try the recent EAP build.
We are also welcome your feedback on concrete issues in our bugtracker.

Thanks a lot
I see that there is many issues related to hg2idea, so my impression that the plugin was less maintained might be wrong.
