1)I've followed the steps to deploy a server to try the program, and got the error :
"TIFF directory is missing required "TileOffsets" field." on the fastcgi server and o other programs.
The image was generated by "convert input.tif ptif:output.tif[128x128]".
What would cause this?
2)There's interest in port the server to java? I've playing with NIO and some advanced stuff, and
your system could fill a blank on a personal project of mine... I could gladly write this.
You seem to have CSS turned off.

Yes, some versions of imagemagick seem to have problems generating pyramidal TIFFs correctly. Indeed my current installed version even seg faults if I try! Have you tried using vips (http://vips.sf.net) instead?
There is a very old java version of the server. We abandoned java because at the time, TIFF access had to be via a native C library using JNI and it was a little slow. I presume java now has in-built TIFF capability via the JAI etc. Yes, we occasionally get requests for a java version, but I've no idea how much demand there really is for such a thing compared to the current FCGI version. But, if you're willing to write it ... ;-) I can also give you the old code if it's helpful.
