I have spent several days working on the JPIP driver initiated by

uses a proposed new method for asynchronous and progressive data
access for GDAL.  The driver now seems to be working fairly well, and
based on that work I have fleshed out the RFC for the proposed new

The implementation can be found in:


It is somewhat hard to build due to the Kakadu dependency - some makefile
hacking may be required.

The RFC can be found at:


Currently I am calling for discussion on the proposed interface - similar
to what it was on the last round, though I've tried to clarify a few issues
and streamlined away a few items.

Depending on feedback I hope to call for a vote on the RFC within a couple
of days.
