It is still there:
Turn on "Add Alpha Channel" in the "image & Quality" panel on the 
preferences panel.

And use this simple example scene:

camera {
	perspective
	location < 0.0, 0.0, -5>
	right x * 1
	up y * 3/4
	angle 60
	look_at < 0.0, 0.0, 0.0>
}
light_source {
	< 0.0, 100, 100>
	rgb <1.000000, 1.000000, 1.000000> * 1.0
}

sky_sphere {
	pigment {
		rgbt <0.016749, 0.198007, 0.999977, 1.000000>
	}
}
sphere {
	<0.0, 0.0, 0.0>, 0.5
				pigment {
				rgb <0.500000, 1.0, 1.0>
			}
	
}
