I was sitting around minding my own business when I got a note from Nik/Google telling me I was eligible to update to the latest bundle across Aperture/Lightroom/Photoshop for free. I had previously only had aperture/lightroom plus didn't have the latest HDR component (which I don't really use anyway, but still), so not a bad deal at all. A good change here is that fact that it is now one installer for the suite, not a bunch of separate ones, which I like. Looks like they've dropped the price of the suite to $150 too. This all gives me hope that they're not going to abandon the plugins, but obviously only time will tell.
