Sailfish 2.0 removed the transparency of the keyboard. The blurry style of the latest versions of Sailfish 1.x was just right. Sailfish had reached the perfect balance between visibility of the keyboard, and transparency. Now, apps look like they have been cut in half. It gives an impression of unfinished work.

Another alternative, would be an optoin to activate / deactivate the solid keyvoard in the System Settings.

I don't mean to be exclusively ciritical. There are other areas where Sailfish is a great design improvement in my opinion : the notification screen is now much prettier and the level of transparency is now perfect, the solid background for the app screen is also better what we had before.

Maybe a screen copy of this transparent keyboard?

It's the default keyboard from Sailfish I can't provide a screenshot since I upgraded.

In general the sf2 keyboard lost some changes that were recently introduced. So I'd expect it really is unfinished.

It was one of the first annoyances (and the only one, really) I noticed right after upgrading. Please bring it back.

The "flowing" transparency seems to me to have taken a step back all over the UX, e.g. in events etc.
