I noticed this, and I think the Scratch Team was testing out an upcoming, unreleased block and accidentally left this in the editor and forgot to remove it. Here is why I think it's not meant to be there
-“fx” isn't proper grammar, as if it were for real they'd use “effects”
-it isn't listed in the tips window
-it clearly doesn't do anything (at least I haven't found out)
-they never mentioned it in the update, and that'd be the main thing
-it is underneath the reporter blocks in “Looks”, which doesn't follow the organization of the blocks
-it is named "Color fx Test", which means they were testing it out, I theorize
I'm guessing, though, that in the next update we may see a new block related to color effects. Maybe it will be a reporter block of all the sprite's effects? Or maybe the wanted block of a color at a specific coordinate? Who knows? Maybe we can ask an ST member like Cheddargirl.

For all those who don't know, this block is at the very bottom of “Looks”.

Lightnin, the ST's main PR guy, is out for a little while. And, in case you were wondering, i don't know what's up with it.

No; we decided to remove the wiki page on it after the huge debate over it. We decided to add the block to a page of obselete blocks, but it won't have its own individual page.

It doesn't do anything. It was made for testing purposes of the ST.

It technically did nothing visible. Just ran code and triggered something so the ST knew it was or wasn't working.

Here. It continues onto another page also. There used to be a pretty large section of votes, but we removed it when decided what to do, so it may not seem as intense anymore. And yes, “Huge” was exaggerated a bit
