How to configure Nios 2/e with Avalon ST interface?

In one of the webinars, i was told that i can configure the Nios 2 with an Avalon ST interface.

But when i configure the Nios 2 softcore in the Platform Designer, i cant see an option where i could change the default Avalon Memmory Mapped interfacte to a ST one.

In the Parameters window for the Nios2/e i appearently can only change the reset and exception vector as well as some advanced features, none of which change the interconnect structure.

Can someone hook me up please? Where is this configuration made? Thanks in advance.

The training is saying that PD supports streaming interfaces.  Not all IP support streaming, though.  Nios uses memory-mapped interfaces.  You can add components to essentially convert between the two standards, like a FIFO, where you can have memory-mapped on one side and streaming on the other.
