Zerene Stacker Beta Testing Downloads
Looking for an explanation of how our “beta channel” works? See HERE for an explanation.
Note: Because these beta versions are downloaded relatively few times, they are sometimes not recognized as known good software by anti-malware packages. You may have to override your anti-malware's behavior of refusing to run unrecognized software.
If you have other security concerns about the beta installers, please see How To Validate A Download.
Current beta is:
- 64-bit Windows 11, 10, 8, 7: ZS-Win64-fullsetup-T2022-07-07-1446-beta.exe
Length 34018160 bytes
MD5 checksum 7a8dffc0da642e387dac5d44d1ae00d0
SHA-1 checksum d94f474728d8d1572ad6007e5869e6c6a86ea466
- 32-bit Windows 11, 10, 8, 7: ZS-Win32-fullsetup-T2022-07-07-1446-beta.exe
Length 49590824 bytes
MD5 checksum b624649a4738f530be5c169572b912aa
SHA-1 checksum 294cf804dd8d73abc010247c636ee7c4531f6f54
- macOS (Intel cpu): ZS-MacOSX-SA-T2022-07-07-1446-beta.zip, downloads as a .zip file that automatically expands into an application bundle named ZereneStacker (.app).
This is the recommended bundle for modern Intel Macs running macOS 10.14 or above. It is self-contained and includes its own Java 17 runtime environment.
Length 48,409,750 bytes
MD5 checksum eb6e0f15a0882cdcb6909e3c0736a4a4
SHA-1 checksum f2871e66d2cb8fc08cae508e03c4206c9c8d150e
- macOS (M-series ARM cpu): ZS-MacOSX-ARM-SA-T2022-07-07-1446-beta.zip, downloads as a .zip file that automatically expands into an application bundle named ZereneStacker (.app).
This is the recommended bundle for modern Macs with ARM cpu (“Apple silicon”). It is self-contained and includes its own ARM-native Java 17 runtime environment. Rosetta is required for the launch program and a few helper programs – so macOS will report the package as “Intel” – but all the heavy computation runs ARM-native.
Length 47,211,841 bytes
MD5 checksum df42459b73419acadd1056f13f4e9d43
SHA-1 checksum 445aaa12f7f834c439a1006a573956d79660a749
- macOS (interim): ZS-MacOSXinterim-SA-T2022-07-07-1446-beta.zip, downloads as a .zip file that automatically expands into an application bundle named ZereneStacker (.app).
This bundle is suitable for Macs running macOS 10.9 through 10.14. It is self-contained and includes its own Java runtime environment.
Length 52,555,065 bytes
MD5 checksum e5caa531679f58a8e5f7b1c3df1e239c
SHA-1 checksum 279886351844b41477123259541ad80bb7726c91
- Mac OS X (old): ZS-MacOSXold-SA-T2022-07-07-1446-beta.zip, downloads as an application bundle named ZereneStacker (.app).
This bundle is not self-contained. It requires a Java runtime environment installed by Apple, and will prompt for installation of Java if one is not already installed. It runs as 64-bit where the processor and operating system support it, and as 32-bit otherwise.

Note: On Macintosh and Linux, if you already have Zerene Stacker installed and are downloading a new version to update it, then you need to manually move the old version to trash, and move or rename the new version to replace it. Otherwise both versions will continue to be available, and you will run whichever one you happen to click on. For further information, see the FAQS on “Installing and Updating”. On Mac, when trashing out the old version, do NOT allow any third party uninstaller or cleanup applications like “AppCleaner” to run. In their enthusiasm to eliminate files that they think are not used, they're likely to also delete files you really do need, like your license key and Zerene Stacker configuration files.
