Jira with an Agile or Kanban board.
I have also used JIRA with the Agile and/or Kanban board. Works well, relatively easy to implement/use.

I also found very useful Twiki and Jive in combination with Jira (e.g. to encourage broader discussions, share high level design). They are collaboration tools, not Agile or Project Management (although Jive does allow to create and manage calendars and tasks).
