Add support not only for WMS but also WMTS background data. Some services offer only WMTS and not both. For users it is confusing as WMS for them is the same as WMTS. We need xWMTS.
Thanks for update. Will try also in Opencities, didn't notice that it was based on U14. Only hope left that it is early U14 and "certified,tested and approved" U14 will be more stable. But WMTS support in Microstation is still a "technology preview" while in other software it just works. I have waited so long(already 5 years or more) for WMTS to be implemented and will be pretty angry if it is unusable. Still not clear why this WMS/WMTS it is implemented trough Raster dialog as it is service similar to Bing maps and the Raster dialog is not suited for that as it doesn't act like background process and slows file open and attach/detach is so slow.
Oto It isPlanned for U14 but as problems are expected most likely U15 will be usable.
I guess you are right. I tried it quickly in just released OpenCities Map 10.05 (based on U14 power platform), and Technology Preview WMTS is really very early beta:
So in fact, I do not know whether it works, but at least when xwmts is configured, there is correct preview ;-)

Critical for us as well.
Definitely needed. We use aerials in everything we do now and the providers of the aerials now use WMTS which is a better format.
