i know this might have come up in an earlier topic but is there an easy way (like in version 3) to set the transparency of the drop down menus?

If you are referring to having slightly transparent menus then do the following.
In your menu declaration put the line:
overfilter="Alpha(style=0,opacity=75);Shadow(color='#666666', Direction=135, Strength=4)";

As you can see here, I set the opacity to 75% and also threw in a shadow to show you how to apply more than one filter at a time.
On a similar note, there is also a way to have it perform some sort of filter when you mouseout of a menu...
outfilter="randomdissolve(duration=0.2);Shadow(color='#777777', Direction=135, Strength=5)";

If you just wanted the background to be totally gone, then zotsf hit the nail on the head. Otherwise, this is a way to do it too.

Does the overfilter attribute have to be set for each menu individually, or can it be applied to the style so it'll cascade to all menus using that style? It might get a little tedious adding this to every single menu and sub-menu...

Edit: I tried adding the overfilter line in different places in the menu array, and it only worked in the menu declaration. Ah, well... Nothing a few ctrl-v's can't fix!
