In short, Bitcoin Zero is designed to bring zk-SNARK back to Bitcoin.
The journey of ’zero’ started from
zerocoin (Miers et al., 2013) a cryptographic extension to Bitcoin including utilizing non-interactive zero-knowledge proofs;
Then, zerocash (Sasson et al., 2014) formulated and constructed decentralized anonymous payment schemes.
After a few technical modification https://github.com/zcash/zips/raw/master/protocol/protocol.pdf,
Zcash as an implementation of zerocash has finally been available for general use.
Now that zk-SNARK is widely accepted, Ethereum for example, users of Bitcoin may want to enjoy the same protection too.
So, here comes the Bitcoin Zero. To achieve such a goal, addition to zk-SNARK,
I intended to implement a chainstate snapshot and
a merged mining PoW, which will be explained later.
Here I want to convey my respect to all the good work mentioned before.
As a gesture, I will honor the founder reward of Zcash in Bitcoin Zero.

Have you tried building with ./zcutil/build.sh?
Well, it is better you discuss technical details with the author directly on github: https://github.com/bitcoinzero/bitcoinzero.

You can not call it as a formal Announcement and if you did not revise and arrange this on a properly manner, you will not get anything from the community, an announcement must have vital coin's information and specifications.

Thank you all! The main net will be opened within 24 hours. Bitcoin Zero's source code has been released here https://github.com/bitcoinzero/bitcoinzero. Once a time stamp is selected and wrote into a genesis block, the genesis block will be released at https://github.com/bitcoinzero/genesis.

You are right! We need official, transparent information about the coin's specifications, roadmap, whitepaper, etc.

White paper can be found at https://github.com/bitcoinzero/doc/blob/master/bitcoinzero.pdf as well as specifications. Roadmap? No.
The author do not have a dev team. As living in main land China, he does not have access to bitcointalk.org even.

I realize I can only post one post every 360 seconds. So I will reply to as many as I can in this post.

However, first thing first. The author is uploading the main net genesis block to github, about 400 MB. Due to his poor network condition, it could take a while. When it is done, the main net is opened.

Replies:

There was one. Someone has already post the link before. Thanks @Dmitry_RS.

@ciaken Thank you!

@Coin_trader vital coin's information and specifications can be found in the white paper.
