Evince status in sid?

Pirate Praveen
Hi,

 I would like to see evince 0.5 in etch since the currect version has lot of issues which are fixed in the latest version. In the BTS it is reported that poppler has some issues and that was quite old news. What is preventing it to move to unstable?

Cheers
Praveen

You might want to try the version in experimental (0.5.3-1) and report
any problems with it.

I tried it and it looks good.That's why I was wondering why it was not in unstable and make it to etch.

Because libpoppler 0.5.x changes soname and what's more there is
unresolved issue with ABI change without changing SONAME in core
library:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7054

tetex-utils would be affected f.e.

 The comments looks like we can expect some stability in glib bindings. Can we use those?

The question is not whether we _can_, we have to use higher level
bindings (glib, qt), but it's not possible because of dependencies:

$ apt-cache rdepends libpoppler0
libpoppler0
Reverse Depends:
  evince (uses libpoppler0-glib)
  epdfview (uses libpoppler0-glib)
* tetex-bin (uses libpoppler0 directly)
  poppler-utils (built from poppler)
  libpoppler1-qt (built from poppler)
  libpoppler1-glib (built from poppler)
  libpoppler-dev (built from poppler)
* kpdf (uses libpoppler0 directly)
  kdegraphics-kfile-plugins (uses libpoppler0-qt)
* abiword-plugins (uses libpoppler0 directly)

And it's not possible to rewrite those within etch release timeframe.
