I posted a bounty to get the latest version of the ZenCash swing wallet in an easy to use open source format. This is the first response that I have received that appears to meet my requirements. I want it on github as a package, with documentation, and the ability to install with apt.
Also want all the features to work, including messaging. Before awarding the bounty I am asking for people to test it. Wallet is posted here: https://github.com/blbradley/zcash-swing-wallet-ui/releases
Basically, I want to just run the application on Ubuntu like any other application, not have to run the zcash binary first, then launch a java app, etc.
