Lubomir, the newest default Qt with  Xenial is 5.5. And I do not think the
latest Subsurface build will work with  such an old Qt. I have been looking
at the build.sh to see if the location of Qt can be changed, but I did not
see that this is possible. In addition, I have no way to download Qt 5.9
from the Ubuntu repository. I have to download it from the Qt Web site. How
did you do this? Kind regards , Willem

building on Ubuntu 16.04 was very easy - no issues even with the
google maps plugin.
i cannot report any issues myself on Ubuntu Xenial.

(had issues before due to package names, but the list in our docs is

i will list some bugs from github here that might need attention:

translations need some work - Swedish, Hebrew, Russian, Bulgarian,
German (Swiss), etc.
i need to translate ~120 strings and that would take me around 1 - 1.5
