    Yes you have :)

    "Transparent" was the wrong word, but my english is sometimes fscked
    up... To be more precise: I removed the *alpha level* slider, since we
    don't support alpha levels for the background color.

    To remove the background color, there's still the "Clear background
    color" button just like in STABLE. The only thing I now just notice is
    that the Clear Background button in HEAD sets the color to "ffffff"
    while the button in STABLE sets it to "transparent". I don't know who
    changed this behavior... What would be prefered? "ffffff" or
