There is major buzz around the announcement that the Los Alamos National Laboratory Research Library has released djakota, a "reuse friendly" open source JPEG2000 Image Server. It's available on SourceForge under a GNU Lesser Public General License.

There's an excellent D-Lib article that fully describes the server. I love the first sentence of the article: "The Digital Library Research & Prototyping Team at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) enjoys tackling challenging problems." Now there's an understatement!

We did some explorations with Kakadu (one of the components of djakota) when I was at UVA, and we use Aware at LC. I plan to take a long, hard look at this.
