** There is a new frame parameter, alpha.
This [does something] on [some kind of system] with [some kind of X
server] and [some kind of window manager].
** Controlling the frame opacity
The opacity of a frame can now be controlled by setting the `alpha'
frame parameter, on an X Window system with the composite extension.
The alpha parameter should be an integer between 0 (transparent) and
100 (opaque) or a float number between 0.0 and 1.0. Optionally, the
opacity can be set by a cons cell; the first item controls the
opacity of an active frame, and the second item controls that of
non-active frames.
(set-frame-parameter nil 'alpha 80)
(set-frame-parameter nil 'alpha 0.8)
(set-frame-parameter nil 'alpha '(100 70)) ; (<active> [<inactive>])
(set-frame-parameter nil 'alpha nil)
Note that the threshold opacity of a frame is defined by the variable
`frame-alpha-lower-limit' (default 20), so that the user may not lose
control of the frame.
