New ZEsarUX stable version 9.0! This year 2020 is being a bit terrible because the pandemic, so we need to cheer up with this little gift, right? ;)

You will find, as always, compiled versions for Linux, Mac, Windows and... big news, FreeBSD! The source code is available, of course. Remember ZEsarUX is open source software, licensed on GNU GPL, and no cost!
