The main changes compared to your fast port version is :
- usb keyboard is really supported (even keys such as @#$%^&*()_+! etc ...)
- analog pad, and all keys of the caanoo works
- https is now working, it was required for me to connect to all free.fr hotspots (in France).
- latest original source were used with many bug fixes
- source code / authors / GNU license is provided in the package as described in the COPYING file.

So after playing around with links2 for a while, I am exceedingly confused. How do you input text? I can't find a way to bring up any sort of soft keyboard and while the usb dongle is plugged in I can't plug in a usb keyboard. Any advice?

In this version, you can only use the usb keyboard, or to browse predefined/bookmarked web site.

I'm using that one, and it works just fine : http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.49001
But i guess that any usb hub works great ...
