Zerene Stacker

Zerene Stacker Downloads

Downloads of Zerene Stacker are a 30-day free trial for new users, and the initial download or free update for licensed users.

There is really only one version of the software. With no license key installed, it runs in time-limited trial mode. Installing a license key unlocks features for unlimited use.

Note: Due to its relatively small distribution, Zerene Stacker is sometimes identified by malware protection software as “untrusted”. We have also seen a few false-positive indications where a Zerene Stacker installer was erroneously identified as containing some sort of malware. If you have any difficulties with installation, or any security concerns about the installers, please see How To Validate A Download and/or contact support@zerenesystems.com for help.

The current production version of Zerene Stacker is Build T2021-10-12-2040 (Oct 12, 2021), as follows:

  • macOS (Intel cpu): ZS-MacOSX-SA-T2021-10-12-2040.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 48,394,891 bytes
    MD5 checksum ce6089ce7a75ab2e017cb26864fe907b
    SHA-1 checksum d1b67384e8c7eaa6f2496551e86e795f6d1f60d1
  • macOS (M-series ARM cpu): ZS-MacOSX-ARM-SA-T2021-10-12-2040.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 47,197,001 bytes
    MD5 checksum 7f36c2b698cbb57096b7375edead33bb
    SHA-1 checksum d1d915beb8109449727d168f12b5e9eacc71f714
  • macOS (interim): ZS-MacOSXinterim-SA-T2021-10-12-2040.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 52,540,156 bytes
    MD5 checksum 5a18e60a8b0ed27b606d4b2ff7fa988e
    SHA-1 checksum 929e535e013c5cc70fb12c55cc99e25bb11136fd
  • Mac OS X (old): ZS-MacOSXold-SA-T2021-10-12-2040.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 8,660,938 bytes
    MD5 checksum 3ea1846cf4c71cc63f5c8c238698fdde
    SHA-1 checksum 40b600a95347f63f8bc031a170040c06f6ce543e
