I'm firmly in the camp of "new" being redundant.

I'd use "Add" simply because its shorter.

Normally my thoughts are more fluid than this, but here goes. If you're writing instructions on how to make a new widget using a UI you're documenting, would you say:


* Create a Widget

* Create a New Widget

* Add a Widget

* Add a New Widget

Also, if you're making something, isn't the "new" implied?


Foggily,
