Please allow to set sequence diagram boxes color to transparent, currently skinparam SequenceGroupBodyBackGroundColor transparent doesn't work.

Sorry, there are been some changes here (see http://plantuml.sourceforge.net/qa/?qa=5639/grouping-messages-should-be-on-top-level )

With last beta (20)

You can now have transparent for SequenceGroupBodyBackgroundColor :

@startuml
skinparam SequenceGroupBodyBackGroundColor transparent

 box "A" #DD55DD
participant user
end box

 box "B" #55CCDD
participant device
end box

 user->device: do something
group if condition 1
device->user: done
end

You can also add transparent like this:

@startuml
box "A" #DD55DD
participant user
end box
 
box "B" #55CCDD
participant device
end box
 
user->device: do something
group #transparent if condition 1
device->user: done
end
@enduml

Could you tell when this will be in the release? For ex, I see the latest eclipse plugin still does not support this

It's in last release of PlantUML.
Not sure when the Eclipse team will upgrade. You can contact them :-)
