A WMS server can provide support for several type of dimensions such as time, elevation or other types of dimensions. The dimension has to be defined as the layer level and can be used by the WMS client to filter requested information. WMS Time is part of the WMS Dimension.
Before, using SVG in QGIS Server wasn't really functional. We improved how QGIS Server fetches remote resources such as SVG in the QGIS Server context. It's now possible to use SVG in your layers and publish them as WMS without rendering issues in QGIS Server.
