118w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer deank has updated the PS3 Game Backup Manager to multiMAN version 02.06.02, which incorporates a refresh speed modification that still maintains the homebrew application's overall performance.
multiMAN versions 01.10.00-02.06.00 ran in VSYNC mode (it caused barely-noticed tearing because of the double refresh rate). Latest update compensates the speed by lowering the refresh speed, while keeping the performance. It means no tearing (unless you really want it - switch with SELECT+SQUARE)..
Opening a SIDE menu will make current entry icon zoom 8x and visible enough in 480p/576p modes. Looks pretty in photo, music, game/fave/retro columns.
"Key Repeat Delay" for some reason was ignored when changing it... Now fixed.
Update is available online, too.
Showtime SELF Version 3.1.265.g6e201.dirty Changelog:
Added: XMB videos and last folder visible in Showtime
Added: Return to multiMAN when using the EXIT icon in to top right corner of main Showtime Interface
Since version 3.1.231 Showtime can play multi-channel audio on the PS3
In 3.1.239 there are fixes for 5.1/7.1 audio processing

Changed: Implemented OpenPS3FTP by jjolano and removed the old buggy FTP server (faster transfer speeds and no path/file length limitations)
This should clear most of the FTP problems multiMAN had. Transfer speed is now faster, you can use 8-16 simultaneous file transfers, and the problem with long path and file names is gone now. The implementation of openps3ftp is based on older version from jjolano, but still is much much better than what multiMAN had until now, so big thanks to him!

If anyone had issues with "Coverflow" mode (locks, motion background video stop/break), use the update from the first post or update your multiMAN online via debug mode.
Also added new option in the XMMB Settings column:
4 new labels in the language files:
Changes background type for XMMB and Coverflow modes.
