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-T2021-10-12-2040-beta.exe
Length 33999376 bytes
MD5 checksum 893d0083ceb3324f00294ae6b858e7f1
SHA-1 checksum 40a9bf8cfbf3198d08368612a9d9cd1b0e9db26f
- 32-bit Windows 10, 8, 7: ZS-Win32-fullsetup-T2021-10-12-2040-beta.exe
Length 49572248 bytes
MD5 checksum 57514b61a343f1cd5088583b3c3b259d
SHA-1 checksum 82f0ffeed9ee29d08b87cb024bf8111c836fdbe9
- macOS (Intel cpu): ZS-MacOSX-SA-T2021-10-12-2040-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 48,394,901 bytes
MD5 checksum db495a6ed34872704a9ea27ee55f7895
SHA-1 checksum 3df3b34b22a79143d7c68d24807615e0c5ae0ec2
- macOS (M-series ARM cpu): ZS-MacOSX-ARM-SA-T2021-10-12-2040-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 47,197,015 bytes
MD5 checksum 43d890f0e0d3c91cd53572785cec13bd
SHA-1 checksum 5f4bb97bd094a0614e0d8d097929b132b259e124
- macOS (interim): ZS-MacOSXinterim-SA-T2021-10-12-2040-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 52,540,180 bytes
MD5 checksum 45f7f13bd5bae2ec997a57d2487c5b99
SHA-1 checksum f60eb60aa38db50fe394a613ebb687430e80e516
- Mac OS X (old): ZS-MacOSXold-SA-T2021-10-12-2040-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.
Compared to the previously announced T2021-08-28-1410-beta, this T2021-10-12-2040-beta incorporates the following improvements:
- Avoid popup on sporadic and harmless noSuchMethod errors inside JRE 17.
- Avoid red popup and hang if source image missing and screen image not cached.
This Build T2021-10-12-2040-beta.exe is functionally equivalent to the current production version, Build T2021-10-12-2040-beta.
Please immediately inform firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
