Hello all,

r76 is now available on the Android market: https://market.android.com/details?id=nextapp.fx&feature=search_result

This release adds support for setting background images for use within FX. By default it will use a dimmed version of your home screen background. You can set a custom image to be used only within FX if you'd like, and the contrast dimming level is configurable in the settings as well. You can also use the wallpaper image as your background for icon, list, and thumbnail views if you'd like. Most of the UI elements are translucent, so you'll be able to see the background through them.

Bluetooth support has been overhauled a bit in this release. Our "Bluetooth Wi-fi Accelerator" which sends files over Wi-Fi instead of Bluetooth for better performance has been changed around a bit. You can now use it while still retaining your phone's own Bluetooth push server (previously you *had* to use FX's push server). All of this is configurable in the settings.

And non-Wi-Fi-accelerated Bluetooth performance is also significantly improved from the 0.73 release. While 0.73 was seeing 25-28KiB/second, 0.76 has been testing at 80-120KiB/second (depending on the device). The Wi-Fi accelerator is still quicker (300-500KiB/second, on a G network). Would very much be interested if anyone is seeing faster or slower times, and on what devices.

Also visible in the Eee Pad screenshot is the new support for showing connected USB devices in the "Files" panel. Any mounted filesystem that is read/write will now show up there, excluding a few items like temporary system folders. Please let me know if you see anything in there that shouldn't be (or vice-versa).

Thanks again for all the comments and suggestions! Very interested to hear input on these new changes...e.g., do you like/dislike the wallpaper option?
