KDE The KDE team has released the first beta of KDE 4.2, slated for release coming January. Quite a lot of new features have been added, as well as lots of bug fixes and performance improvements. This release also makes a lot of strides to feature parity with KDE 3.x, by adding those small little features that KDE 3.x users are barely aware of, but which were missed in KDE 4.0/4.1, such as taskbar grouping, multiple rows in the taskbar, panel auto-hiding, a traditional icon desktop through 'full-screen' foderview, and so on.

Just to clarify the above post - you need compositing enabled and working, then you open konsole and do Settings menu -> edit current profile -> appearance tab -> edit... -> change background transparency slider and apply. This also works for the Yakuake drop-down console. Nice :-)

This is true transparency which I do not like. Browser (Opera, Konqueror) as konsole's background looks really bad.
