Zerene Stacker

Zerene Stacker Beta Testing Downloads

Looking for an explanation of how our “beta channel” works? See HERE for an explanation.

Current beta is:

  • Mac OS X: ZS-MacOSX-SA-T201706041920_beta.zip, downloads as an application bundle named ZereneStacker (.app).
    This is the recommended bundle for modern Macs. It is self-contained and includes its own Java 8 runtime environment, which will be used with Mac OS X 10.7.3 and above. With older versions of Mac OS X, it will use whatever /usr/bin/java is already installed on the computer, but will not request installation of Java if none is currently available. This bundle runs as 64-bit where the processor and operating system support it, and as 32-bit otherwise.
    (Length 65,236,325 bytes; MD5 checksum a471b8533bd6c14c291441c1b1c22834)
  • Mac OS X (old): ZS-MacOSXold-SA-T201706041920_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.
    (Length 8,523,053 bytes; MD5 checksum e0cdf398865e2e9df1ce31b87fb01c58)

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.

Compared to the previously announced T201706022100_beta, the current beta is a release candidate that contains one bug fix:

  • Bug fix: force 8-bit color for JPEG even if specified otherwise.

Compared to the earlier T201705122140_beta:

  • Bug fixes in StackShot robot:
    • Mouse release and mousewheel commands not issued correctly.
    • “DL” not honored as shortcut for “Delay”.
  • Bug fix: difficult to select a folder using native filechooser.
  • Bug fix: Batch dialog sometimes treated user interface hint as folder name.
  • User interface:
    • Batch dialog, reorganized for top-to-bottom workflow.
    • DMap preferences, label depth map target as “folder” not “directory”.

Please immediately inform support@zerenesystems.com if you encounter any difficulties or odd behavior with this beta version. Be sure to send a console log if appropriate – instructions for that are provided HERE.
