This article identifies several sources of information about software products that supports Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), but it does not (indeed, cannot) provide comprehensive information about the thousands of products available from hundreds of vendors.

The IPv6 Product Testing Results article in the Testing section identifies six different categories of organizations:

International,
United States (US) government,
US Department of Defense,
Commercial and open source,
Original Equipment Manufacturer, and
Other.

that have tested many software products and documented their support for IPv6.

Several sections and individual articles in this IPv6 Knowledge base identify relevant software products, including:

IP Transport section provides configuration details for various computer and router operating systems that support IPv6,
Security section provides configuration details for various firewalls that support IPv6,
Applications section provides configuration details for various web browsers that support IPv6,
IPv6 and Virtual Private Networks (VPN) article in the Infrastructure section identifies VPNs that 
    simultaneously tunnel both IPv6 and IPv4 through a single tunnel, and
IPv6 Software Information file (archived Dec 2011, but IPv6 support status remains valid for later versions) lists software products:
    (a) System and Application Development Products (Libraries, Compliers, Debuggers, et cetera) and
    (b) Third Party (Commercial Off The Shelf [COTS], Government Off The Shelf [GOTS], and Open Source)
        that support IPv6 (or indicates that they do not use Internet Protocol at all). Since this file was originally
        compiled as part of the Defense Research and Engineering (DREN) IPv6 Pilot, many of the entries are for 
        software used on supercomputers.

The IPv6 compliance of WLCG applications file (archived June, 2014, but IPv6 support status remains valid for later versions) lists Worldwide Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Computing Grid (WLCG) software that supports IPv6. Since this file was originally compiled as part of the WLCG project, many of the entries are for software used on supercomputers.

The IPv6 to Standard website (last updated in 2011, but IPv6 support status remains valid for later versions), was maintained by the IETF and the IPv6 Maintenance 6man working group. It lists many software products that support IPv6.

Several articles in the Wikipedia Encyclopedia indicate whether software products in several categories do or do not support IPv6, including:

common applications,
email clients,
DNS servers,
mail servers,
network monitoring systems,
operating systems,
     licensed operating systems,
    
open-source operating systems,
remote desktop software,
SSH clients,
SSH servers,
Usenet newsreaders,
virtual private network services,
web browsers,
web hosting control panels, and
web server software

The University of Wisconsin Knowledgebase IPv6 Application Compatibility article lists software that supports IPv6 (archived Nov 2009, but IPv6 support status remains valid for later versions).

The Microsoft.com IPv6 Support in Microsoft Products and Services article (archived Sept 2017, but IPv6 support status remains valid for later versions) lists Microsoft applications, server and Operating System software that supports IPv6.

The DeepSpace 6 Linux IPv6 Portal, Networking Applications article lists Networking Applications that support IPv6.

All apps for Apple iOS 9 (or later) submitted to the App Store must be compatible with IPv6 DNS64/NAT64 networks.

Some software manufactures provide information about software that supports IPv6 on their websites, including:

CA Technologies (formerly known as Computer Associates International, Inc.) IPv6 Compatibility Matrix
    article lists applications that do/do not support IPv6,
HP Development Company, L.P. (HP) Federal Certifications: IPv6 article lists software that supports IPv6,
International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) IPv6 Compatibility article lists applications that
    support IPv6, and
Red Hat, Inc. (RedHat) Government Standards article lists applications, server, and Operating System
    software that supports IPv6.
