I just checked the link and it worked fine for me

Link works fine for me. But finally, only being able to navigate the eShop with the Gamepad was so damn annoying considering I hardly use it.

The Wii U board is seriously just awful.

Those are actually some nice features. Seems like Nintendo is at least making an effort to address some complaints with the UI.

Took them long enough. 3DS has it and it was unfair the Wii U didn't. Might actually sell my Wii U to my friend now for $300 (I have $250+ in downloaded games) + all my retail games. Then when (I'm low on money right now and need it for things) I feel the need to own one again (I'm sure there is, but not right now), buy another and transfer my stuff over.

I didn't even know you COULDN'T do this. I know it was just for System Settings but I can't believe it was for the eshop too.

Good to see steady improvement through the updates. None of it matters to me since I use the Gamepad for everything anyway and don't plan on getting another Wii U, but I'm sure many users will be pleased.
