This plugin set contain 4 plugins helpful in 360° equirectangular panorama

Distort for Panorama

The plugin allows to distort series of images so that they nicely fit together. The user must provide the horizontal view angle and possibly inclination angle of the camera, if the photos have not been taken in the horizontal plane. After that, the selected layer is recalculated from the plane onto a cylinder or onto a cone. If the parameters are set correctly, then perfect match of two adjacent images can be achieved, both in vertical and horizontal dimension.

Pandora simplifies the process of stitching together a sequence of panorama images.

Load all the panorama pieces (in order) as layers inside an image (suggestion: make a new image then "Open as Layers" and select all the files). Then run Filters->Combine->Make Panorama.

You still have to do the detailed matching by hand, but Pandora calculates the needed image size, moves all the layers to approximately the right position and creates appropriate layer masks for fading each image into the next.
