Description

At this moment is possible to set transparency to whole vector symbol but it's not possible to create symbol with semitransparent parts. It should be possible to set transparency to every vector symbol layer. Such feature would allow i.e. to display polygons with solid borders and semitransparent solid fill.

Actually I think it is already possible to do what you want - on a feature you can have opaque and transparent fills, separate for each symbol level. However, this is on each feature, not on a group of features (e.g. all features in a symbol level).

Depending on what "marisn" wants, we can close this ticket, as it is already possible (and had been for a long time) to mix transparent on opaque fills.

It has become partially possible thanks to the new colour selection window (Yes! QGIS is making a nice progress!). If I read #1898, then it covers the main remaining use case - providing a transparency slider for the symbol layer (or group of layers). Although quite possible, that #1898 is also covered by "draw effects" dialog where a transparency slider is implemented (can not test as draw effects are not working at all on my QGIS version).
