The latest system update for the Wii U is now available for download, and it brings with it the previously announced ability to "Quick Start" the console to swiftly jump into a game without the prolonged wait.
Another new addition is GamePad alerts and notifications, which allow the GamePad to flash up messages even when the Wii U console is in standby mode. And what would a system update be without the usual selection of mysterious "improvements to system stability and usability"? Don't worry, they're included in 5.0.0, too!
Here's the full change log:

New Features:
A Quick Start Menu is now displayed when users press the GamePad POWER Button or HOME Button to power on the Wii U
Users can start recently played or newly installed software directly from the Quick Start Menu
Wii U GamePad Alerts (special notifications from Nintendo) can be displayed on the GamePad when the Wii U is powered down
Users will be notified with an audio ringtone when a new GamePad Alert is displayed
GamePad Alerts that have been received can also be viewed through the Quick Start Menu


Changes to Standby Functions:
System updates will now automatically install after download when the Wii U is in Standby


Changes to the Wii U Menu:
The User Settings screen now displays when users select their User Mii from the Wii U Menu
The design and layout of the Users Settings screen has been updated
This includes the ability to switch the active user from the User Settings screen


Changes to System Settings:
Quick Start Menu options have been added to Power Settings
Wii U GamePad Alert options are located within the Quick Start Menu options


Changes to the HOME Menu
A Notification icon is now available on the HOME Menu, allowing users to launch the Notifications feature from the HOME Menu
Improvements to system stability and usability:
