 Hi guys,

 This new GIMP JPEG-2000 plugin is now available from :

Very interesting! In order to speed up the process of considering adding
this to vanilla GIMP you should try this on Linux to make sure it works
nicely and also provide a patch against SVN trunk. It also must be
possible to set the output quality of course.

 I could do this by taking apart the makefiles and figuring out the library
 dependencies, 
 but a more straightforward solution should exist.

 I also had to add a WinMain command line to argc,argv convertor to gimp.h -
 you're

Well I'm not sure it is valid to call it faulty since you've obviously
managed to build something with it, but it doesn't sound as if you at
all use the build system GIMP is meant to be build with, namely
autotools (Automake, Autoconf etc).

AFAIK if you are going to build GIMP on Windows you should use
mingw+msys with autotools and friends. Doing it is a terrible experience
though and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. (The more or less official
Windows build of GIMP isn't even built on Windows but cross compiled on
Linux.)
