I've reply some hours ago to the Peter's message but it seems I am 
having some kind of problem here. Please, allow me to re-post here my 
message. Thanks!

Thanks Peter.

I've installed what I see as last builds both for R.app GUI and R 
framework. Here what I have:

 > version
platform i386-apple-darwin9.2.2
arch i386
os darwin9.2.2
system i386, darwin9.2.2
status beta
major 2
minor 7.0
year 2008
month 04
day 12
svn rev 45280
language R
version.string R version 2.7.0 beta (2008-04-12 r45280)

And R GUI 1.24-devel (5072)

I get now ONLY one Quartz entry in the upper menu. Great!

Nevertheless, what I am not seing now is the semi-transparent canvas 
when an on-screen devices are launched. This makes a differences whith 
I've been seing before and I think this is not what I must expect by 
reading ?quartz...

"On-screen devices are launched with a semi-transparent canvas. Once a 
new plot is created, the canvas is first painted with the canvas colour 
and then the current background colour (which can be transparent or 
semi-transparent). Off-screen devices have no canvas colour, and so 
start with a transparent background where possible (e.g. type="png" and 
type="tiff") – otherwise it appears that a solid white canvas is assumed 
in the Quartz code."

Is this worth to be reported any other place or is this the right 
channel? Thanks!!
