It is really a good news.

I upgraded ConTeXt to 05-08 version using i-installer and create a  
format file for XeTeX with
texexec --make --xtx en.

After that I tried the MP code using "texexec --xtx filename"

>> \starttext
>> \startMPcode
>>    fill fullcircle scaled 3cm withcolor red;
>>    fill fullcirce scaled 3cm shifted (2cm,1cm) withcolor
>> transparent(1,0.5,green);
>> \stopMPcode
>> \stoptext

But there is an error message as follows:

TeXExec 5.4.3 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2005

               metapost : xetexmeta-mpgraph
                 format : metafun

What is wrong in my process? Thank you for reading.

Best regards
