BMPanel can select ARGB visuals providing, together with composite manager, a true transparency (but system tray doesn't work in composite mode).

BMPanel doesn't try to be portable. It should work on a distribution with the latest Linux kernel and with the latest software (probably CVS/SVN/git versions). Supported architectures are x86 (32 bit) and x86_64 (64 bit). However, BMpanel may work on other distributions, kernels (like FreeBSD) and even architectures, but it isn't guaranteed.
