Display simple dates/times for issues list
Showing simple/relative date/time instead of a full date for issues would be very helpful - when all the dates have the same format they don't stand out.
Could you consider adding the following logic to date/time display in issue lists (and if its not too much trouble through the rest of the app).
Under 1 hour: n minute[s] ago
Under 1 day: n hour[s] ago
Under 1 week: n day[s] ago
Under 1 month: n week[s] ago
Under 1 year: n month[s] ago
Over 1 year: Over n year[s] ago
Within 1 day: In n hour[s]
Within 1 week: In n day[s]
Within 1 month: In n week[s]
Within 1 year: In n month[s]
Over 1 year: In over n year[s]

It could be done as a globally used config setting, or it could be done as a subject matter based preference but the aesthetics doesn't necessarily warrant that level of additional configuration imho.
Date format "Relative" available as a global configuration with i18n support doesn't seem too far fetched..I'd do it myself if RoR was my forte.
