Hi all,

At OPENGIS.ch we have recently looked into different raster formats. The 
results can be read here: 

Not that surprising, but one of the interesting findings was that webp 
is very efficient. Low filesize, reasonable rendering performance, 
support for transparency. In short, it has all the potential for being 
used as default transport format for WM(T)S.

Looking at our server implementation, this format is not supported. Did 
someone ever think about or even look into that?
