Where did the "Last Comment" field go?

We just upgraded from 5 to 6. In 5 I had a "last comment" or "most recent comment" or some such field displayed near the top of the main form. Now it is gone. I'm pretty sure it came from a plug-in, but I don't know which one.

I see it mentioned when I do some searches, but not in any plug-in I am familiar with.

Ideas anyone?

NEW ANSWER ...

This morning I took the update to the 2.2.1 update to ServiceRocket JIRA Utilities. The change was for JIRA 6 compatibility.

Now, magically, my last comment field is back in all its former glory.

Developer: ServiceRocket

Add-on key:net.customware.jira.utils.customware-jira-utilities

Hmm, I'm not sure which plugin you were using previously, but I managed to find this plugin - CCC Last Comment which seems like it could help your requirements.

There's also this feature request here which is requesting for the 'Last Comment' field to be a core feature of JIRA. For now, I would recommend that you do the following on the feature request ticket :

* Vote, so that it will receive more attention

* Watch it, so that you will receive any and all updates

* Comment, and give your opinion on the matter

Please note that the implementation of new features and improvement requests falls under Atlassian's Implementation of New Features Policy

Thanks. I saw teh CCC Last Comment paid add-in this morning. I know I didn't have that plug-in for JIRA 5 and I know that in JIRA 5 I was displaying the last comment on the main tab.

I wrote a new listener using Slingshot.

That cures my problem.

It doesn't answer the question of where the field when during the upgrade.
