Hi Kim,

I recommend Jenkins (formerly Hudson), it is free and plenty of plugins, works with most vas and build tools maven, ant, gradle, grails etc.
I also can recommend Bamboo, very good when you have a large number of projects as it scales nicely but it costs money.

Code Review:  FishEye & Crucible - very easy to use

Bug tracking:  I have been using Jira for the past couple of years and I really don't like it.  I don't know of any alternatives and would love to hear about some.  It is over complicated and I have yet to come across customisations that ever seem to work.  I prefer cards on the wall/board but you need to bare in mind cards can go missing.  Amazing what havoc an over zealous cleaner can do to an iteration.

We're looking at setting up a nice new development and deployment process and I am evaluating different tools to use in our Agile[ish] environment.

We need:
- project management + bug tracking
- code review
- ci 
all hooked in and integrated together along with a vcs (ideally git or svn).  The most obvious solution is the Atlassian set with JIRA w/ Greenhopper, Crucible etc.  

Does anyone have any personal recommendations of toolsets that work well together and are nice to use?  

I'd appreciate any feedback - even if it's "Don't use XYZ! It's a nightmare!"
