Note that this document has beta status and refers to a version of 
PSTricks that is still in beta. The transparency features require 
version 1.16b of PSTricks, while the current version on CTAN is 1.15. I 
believe Herbert has said he expects to officially release version 1.16 
by the end of the year.

In the meantime, you have two options. One is to install the beta 
version, which you can do using the pstricks.tex and pstricks.pro files 
from the same directory where you found pst-news2007.pdf. The other 
option is to use the transparency features in the pstricks-add package. 
I have done the latter with great success.
