Hello Tim,

WMTS support is not listed in the changelog. Does it mean that there is no 
WMTS support?

WMTS suport has been added after QGIS 1.8 by Jürgen, one year ago I think and 
has never been in an official released but I am be wrong.

> - Please do not commit anything to the 2_0_0 branch except packaging

> (taking into account the hold-until-the-site-is-ready note above).
> - If you are able to make packages for unlisted platforms / distros
> please discuss your plans on this thread so that we can avoid duplication
> of effort.
> - I would like to make the release announcement next week, so it will be
> great to have as many packages as possible ready by then.
> - GIT master is open again for general commits - please seek guidance
> from Marco Hugentobler (PSC Code Manager) if you are planning any major
> code changes.
> - Juergen Fischer (incoming PSC Release Manager) will be managing the
> release process for future releases, so please follow his lead in terms of
> code freeze etc in master.
> Many thanks to all the developers, testers, bug fixers, bug reporters,
> document writers, translators and users that help to make QGIS 2.0.0 a
> reality!
> Lastly can I call on the release team (or any interested people) to help to
> put together visual changelog (link below), press announcements etc. ready
> for the release date? I will send you an email when the packages are ready
> and you can start broadcasting announcements.
> Visual Changelog Page: http://changelog.linfiniti.com/version/1/ (this is
> the site for drafting the release, the final release content will be on the
> official QGIS web site). Please contact me if you would like to contribute
> to the changelog and I will give you the needed permissions.
