Better logging for WMS issues
I think Bentley could make a better logging option for WMS errors as the "old camera" error checking. Replacing detailed xml error with camera picture is not a good approach. In WMS requests Bentley desktop apps explicitly require to have errors returned...

Maintain 2d dynamic view in 3D model for dgn to dwg translation

Support WMS 1.3.0 version
WMS 1.3.0 was not fully supported in v8i versions while it was wrongly mentioned in help file that " Raster Manager supports WMS version 1.3." Now in CONNECT Edition it is possible at last to attach 1.3 version WMS with some issues but now in help...
