Any updates on this?

Will Inkscape have checker pattern for transparent background? Is something that is a really big issue, as is impossible to tell the level of transparency of the objects, can't see any white object.

And the workaround with "colored" background it just doesn't work. One has to make it transparent back prior export. Should be fixed properly.
Especially because the opacity sliders in inkscape use that checkerboard to show the transparency level.
