Indicate issue dependencies in gantt
E.g. if Issue #1 precedes Issue #2, this is taken into account in the gantt by listing them after each other in time,
- They were listed below each other (sequent row) and/or
- Connected by a line or arrow

This issue was created almost a year ago, I don't see why no one has taken this or commented out.
It is a major issue when using redmine as a replacement for a desktop-file-based application like Microsoft Project, Openproj and such.
If anyone could help even I could give it a shot.

Yes, I think that gantt is unusable if it does not indicate task dependencies.
Also, the gantt does not show tasks without start time... But if we know that task1 is 40 hours and task2 is dependent on task1 and is 20 hours, we can produce reasonable gantt from this data.

Unless these tasks (issues) are having their respective 'target version'-field set to a version which has a due date actually set, because then the issues are displayed in the Gantt-chart using their respective 'target version's due date.

Guys, please check my plugin http://www.redmine.org/plugins/redmine_better_gantt_chart. It does exactly this - shows task dependencies with arrows on the gantt chart.

Thank you. It looks great! But unfortunately (for me) it doesn't seem working with "gantt chart editting" patch #2024 - a very handy one as well indeed. Hopefully that edit feature will become a part of the trunk some day. So you could update the plugin appropriately.

@Pavel - I released v.0.2.1 compatible with patch #2024, you can download this version here http://www.redmine.org/attachments/5523/redmine_better_gantt_chart-0.2.1-patch2024.zip.
Please let me know how it works.
