Show live Gantt chart
The Structure Board could display Gantt chart instead of the aggregate progress.
However, this may need for additional data to be recorded for each issue (work logs may be not enough).
Also it would require a wide screen for effective use.
ALM Works announced the availability of our new offering in this area today.
Structure.Gantt adds the power of Gantt charts to Jira projects through Structure work breakdown structures.

Our company is using Structure over other plugins like Greenhopper and hope to see Gantt charts in the near future. is this something we can expect in about 6 months, or more like atleast 1 year away?
Markus, I can tell with 100% certainty that we won't release Gantt chart feature in Structure in the next two weeks.
Also, to everyone watching -- thanks for your support of this idea! It is a crucial piece of input for our prioritization.
However, I can tell that it is unlikely that we'll have Gantt charts earlier than at least six months from now -- if done right, it is a huge piece of functionality. And we want to do it right. Eventually. (Or perhaps have some other plugin vendor provide a plugin that would show Gantt on the Structure widget - some work is being done in that direction as well.)
Thanks and keep feedback coming!
We are shopping for a Gantt plugin for our company, and will make a decision soon - it would be great if Structure was a contender in the next few weeks, as no existing plugin seems to do the job very well at this point. Is there an ETA on this feature?
Oh we may need a whole lot of things for the Gantt. Some could be expressed via existing JIRA concepts (for example, dependency - through links), some could be added via custom fields.
We'd need to add start and end dates for a Gantt
Aggelos, thanks for your question - this is possible, but beyond the scope of current plans (version 1.0) - as well as the Gantt chart, for that matter.
After version 1.0 kicks off, we'll continue improving Structure, and adding features found in Project software would be quite natural.

Are you planning to support also dependencies (successors, lags etc) found in other PM tools?
