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:

  • Mac OS X (newest): ZS-MacOSX-SA-T2020-06-01-1033-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 running macOS 10.14 or above. It is self-contained and includes its own Java 12 runtime environment.
    Length 52,888,429 bytes
    MD5 checksum 88369ef9c901a3821a1933d2f4525c31
    SHA-1 checksum 49b4d8ab52b9495af289a557028c05308ccea035
  • Mac OS X (interim): ZS-MacOSXinterim-SA-T2020-06-01-1033-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 12 runtime environment.
    Length 52,333,562 bytes
    MD5 checksum 6c3066d133c066e4845f6692043b01a7
    SHA-1 checksum 3e63067e0b25b9254af878d419104d6ed6faf75c
  • Mac OS X (old): ZS-MacOSXold-SA-T2020-06-01-1033-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 8,606,041 bytes
    MD5 checksum 1a96a3f89acd95b96513f9f50c3e0241
    SHA-1 checksum fe9f88f5b0f51cf39a1fde72ee91c887a01dcfb3

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.
