Group components can't be set transparent

asked Oct 10 in Bug by Rob Oxspring

I understand that transparency isn't supported for normal shapes (although it would be nice!).

However, group shapes are transparent by default (see node below), and can be set to a color (see database below), but setting the color to transparent results in even the group shapes being painted white (see cloud below).

@startuml
skinparam backgroundColor silver
'skinparam nodeBackgroundColor
skinparam cloudBackgroundColor transparent
skinparam databaseBackgroundColor yellow

node "Group mode node" {
  node
simplenode
  node multilinenode[
    = Multi-line node

herea
  ]
}

cloud "Group mode cloud" {
  cloud
simplecloud
  cloud multilinecloud[
    = Multi-line cloud
    More detail goes here
  ]
}

database "Group mode database" {
  database simpledatabase

  database multilinedatabase[
    = Multi-line database
    More detail goes here
  ]
}
