The deb file of my binary release of Zcash v1.0.2 built on Ubuntu 16.04 (should run fine on 16.10 and Mint Cinnamon, too) is out, download is:
To install, run
sudo dpkg -i zcash-1.0.2-amd64.deb
If you have not previously installed zcash, you may need to run
sudo apt-get install libgomp1 (the deb spec file from ZcashCo does not pull it in correctly as a dependency; if they haven't fixed that by the time the next release comes out I'll probably tweak the deb file build script to do so).
As always, I'm not a ZcashCo employee, and my donation info to support my ports and non-debian binary releases is in my profile and on my website at https://zcash.mercerweiss.com
Thank you for your support,
