Sounds like you haven't enabled the compositor. Tbh I haven't tested the
branch without compositor, but I would expect rounded corners to work
either way (XShape extension), transparency obviously cannot really work.

I noticed some other issues, which are some lags (maybe my local install or
has someone else noticed that?) and a strange inconsistency with theming:
my css code works with the preview window, i.e. the button there is styled
correctly, but not with the actual popups, where the buttons are left
