Request: Nik Collection (Photoshop Plug-ins & Stand-Alone)

Google, who has aquired the Nik company in 2012, has just released the latest release 1.2.11 of the Nik Collection (Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro, Dfine) for free for Windows and Macintosh: link.

The System requirements are:

Mac:

Mac® OS X 10.7.5 through 10.10
Adobe Photoshop CS4 (CS5 for HDR Efex Pro 2) through CC 2015
Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 through 13 (apart from HDR Efex Pro 2, which is not compatible with Photoshop Elements)
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 through 6/CC
Apple® Aperture® 3.1 or later
Windows:

Windows Vista®, Windows 7, Windows 8
Adobe Photoshop CS4 through CC 2015
Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 through 13 (apart from HDR Efex Pro 2, which is not compatible with Photoshop Elements)
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 through 6/CC
GPU Compatibility:

NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series, GeForce 9 Series, GeForce 100 Series, GeForce 200 Series, GeForce 300 Series, GeForce 400 Series, GeForce 500 Series, ATI Radeon HD2000 Series, Radeon HD3000 Series, Radeon HD4000 Series, Radeon HD5000 Series, Radeon HD6000 Series.

If no compatible card is available, GPU acceleration will be disabled and the CPU will be used.

As the latest version was released for free and development was halted, I suppose the older releases can be regarded as abandonware ?

Older releases of the Nik Collection were compatible with Mac OS 9, Mac OS X 10.1-10.5, Windows 98 and Photoshop 4.0:

Please consider to upload these old releases to help preserving them for the future !

Big thank you for the upload ! Laughing out loud
Do you have the Complete Edition of the years 2011 (Mac OS 10.5.8 - 10.6 and later / Photoshop CS3 - CS5) and (before ?) 2006 (Mac OS 9 and Mac OS 10.1 - 10.4 and later / Photoshop 4.0 - CS2), too ?
(see also the 2 Wayback Machine links in the first post !)

The Windows versions of the Nik Collection are also welcome !

Any chance to get the 68k version of these PS plugins?

Am I missing something?
The link at the OP is still working, so anybody plus his dog may download.

Nils Kokemohr did write Photoshop filters before this collection, here is Nils´2.0 from 1995:

The first link is useless to me (or my dog) as it only supports "Mac® OS X 10.7.5 through 10.10".
The second link is a better hint and I've already downloaded the set.

True, neither cats nor me can make much of the Goggle donation either.
Maybe the Windows DL is more promising?

We did collect some Photoshop Filters over time, presumably matching from PS_2.5 on.
Should I upload the whole unsorted mess eventually for evaluation?
KPT and Alien Skin are already archived and many will be creations of the Photoshop Filter Factory.

While I was very targetted in my QXP4 XTension hunt, my quest for PS plugins is more of a fishing expedition.
So yes, a mess *might* be interesting, but my aim is limited to plugins for PS 4.0 for 68k.
