> Almost all the operations were implemented using cairo (pending are stamp, rotation, mirroring, and  grayscale effect) and was ported to gtk3. The change was big, then testing and report of regressions is welcomed.

Using cairo enable the use of alpha, then a new "Opacity" control allows change it.
