Is it just me or no one thinks adding link fields should already be in Drupal 8 core?

Link fields are already in Drupal 8 core, thanks.

Sorry for reopening but can you explain me then why there is no "Link" option in Field type for Content types in current Drupal 8.x-alpha2 release?

No, I can't. Sun (and many other folks, I'm sure) worked on the Drupal 8 branch and getting the code included in Drupal 8, I wasn't involved other than including some of their changes in a backport to D7.

It's a Drupal 8 issue, I suggest you ask someone familiar with Drupal 8. Sorry if it seems brusque, but I'm a little busy this year. :)

However, I will ask if you've turned on the link module? Maybe it's not turned on automatically with 8. I'm afraid I haven't done much with 8 yet.

Thanks. It's there and disabled by default.
For anyone that will come to this issue, looking for Link module in Drupal 8, just enable it in the Extend (/admin/modules) page.

Thanks for letting us know that. Next time I'm mucking with the project page, I'll try to remember to add a note about it being disabled by default in Drupal 8.
