Have you tried building it from source on Kinetic?

I built it yesterday on Xenial and Kinetic with no problems, and it passed all the unit tests. So, you can run it from source until a binary release is available.

Thanks Jack, I'll build it from source.

Please don't.

There are new Indigo and Jade releases in the pipeline. Kinetic will come after that.

Thanks for inquiring. I opened issue #93 to track resolution of your problem.
