Suggested new feature: Recent ticket list at right of New Issue page
It would be immensely helpful to have, at the right of the New Issue page, a list of the recently created tickets within a project. Proposed features would be:
1. A list of five (5) to ten (10) recently created issues at right, underneath the current Versions information, as links to those tickets.
2. Each link would have an Ajax-style popup that would show the ticket's vital information (Issue ID, Tracker, Subject, Assigned To, Version, Due Date, Estimated Time, Category, and Status).
3. The recent issues list would show only issues within the current project.
The main reason for this is so that as issues are created, mainly during project setup but also afterward, the creator can insert the number of any related issues into the Description, and/or link them via Relate Issues, without having to open up a new tab, navigate to the Issues list, and look for them there.
An alternative to this might be a quick search widget box, that would Ajax-lookup the ticket so the user could find the number he's looking for without having to leave the page. Or, it might be created as a widget that one could place on that part of the page, or in other places.
Thanks for considering this!

This is a good idea. Ajax wouldn't be needed if the built in tooltip methods are used (uses CSS to show/hide a div).
This could also be implemented as a Redmine plugin using the sidebar hooks.
