Agilo

Agilo based on Trac. The tool is under active development. While it has several nice features like timeline, burn down charts and dashboard, integrated wiki, the concept behind Agilo has several flaws. There are no projects in the system, it means if you have several projects you will have to implement a workaround. Iteration and Releases planning is cumbersome, it is not easy to figure out how to create an iteration plan.

Still Agilo is a good free tool for agile development.



Pros Cons
