Hugin

There isn't much competition here, Hugin is currently the most sophisticated and easy to use tool for stitching photos and assembling panoramas on Unix/Linux systems (also available for Windows and OS X).

Hugin is a standalone GUI program which depends on Helmut Dersch's pano12 library to perform much of the hard work.

There are some optional tools that can be used in conjunction with hugin, but none of these are actually required to produce high quality results:

  • autopano-sift - Save time by automatically generating control-point pairs, requires the mono .NET runtime.
  • autopano - Similar to autopano-sift (Freeware).
  • enblend - Perform sophisticated blending of seams when overlapping photos have varying brightness.
  • PTStitcher - Freeware alternative to nona, the internal hugin stitcher.
  • PTmender - Open Source replacement for PTStitcher, part of the pano12 package.

Tools

Panorama viewers

Plugins for the Gimp

The Gimp is a sophisticated image editor.

There are several panoramic photography related gimp plugins that can be used to manipulate panoramas.
