the core team has been discussing the technical needs for a 3.0  
version.  One of the core changes for 3.0 that is planned is to  
improve the AJAX mode ... currently called JSAPI ... and this would  
be done primarily by incorporating the mapping part of the OpenLayers  
project that is being (will be) adopted as the central map rendering  
component of many web mapping projects.  OpenLayers has a javascript  
tiling engine very similar to ka-Map's, but has a cleaner  
architecture and can incorporate many different layer types.  What it  
lacks is any server-side component for creating tiles ... which is  
where ka-Map comes in!

Interestingly, we are seeking some funding to help out with this  
effort :)  I will contact you off list regarding this.
