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-T2023-06-11-1120-beta.exe
Length 34014880 bytes
MD5 checksum ba09412fa0076e7fe91b88983c03e57b
SHA-1 checksum 7db11dca9be6a05d23bc921e09a61f6c44913d17
- 32-bit Windows 11, 10, 8, 7: ZS-Win32-fullsetup-T2023-06-11-1120-beta.exe
Length 49589288 bytes
MD5 checksum 95f24b19609b7908c74e84e2b768ce73
SHA-1 checksum d85e37883f4b14b4663e9c13a7ed4a3505b33b67
- macOS (Intel cpu): ZS-MacOSX-SA-T2023-06-11-1120-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 48,411,821 bytes
MD5 checksum 0626b2060b731d5b2ae33b7fb7b78d83
SHA-1 checksum 708cef8f5bdbff5b36a4ccd935a32158bb8ac859
- macOS (M-series ARM cpu): ZS-MacOSX-ARM-SA-T2023-06-11-1120-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 47,213,941 bytes
MD5 checksum 64f879e258e220b0e92013a778a5f0e8
SHA-1 checksum b142e8663e724a83d7d44d1f03e2bf37cde1990a
- macOS (interim): ZS-MacOSXinterim-SA-T2023-06-11-1120-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 52,555,668 bytes
MD5 checksum 61ec484f0e81965c46016e30045047f2
SHA-1 checksum 5400c661ac75575f1ec1dc93c8a6b2563b9527e2
- Mac OS X (old): ZS-MacOSXold-SA-T2023-06-11-1120-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.
This new T2023-06-11-1120-beta is functionally equivalent to the current full release, T2023-06-11-1120.
Compared to the previous beta release T2022-07-07-1446-beta, this new T2023-06-11-1120-beta incorporates the following improvements:
- Bug fix:
- Allow launch from Windows as just zerenstk.exe, with no path specified.
- User interface:
- Improve error messages for image size mismatch and defect mask missing.
- Allow command line arguments -cfg:name=value to override settings in zerenstk.cfg .
- Correct typo in preferences memory help panel, “pixels” –> “megapixels”.
Please immediately inform email@example.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.
