Evince 3.18.1 updated with numerous bug fixes

Evince, the default document viewer for the GNOME desktop environment, has been updated to include updated translations and several bugfixes.

Evince can handle a number of document types, including PDF, DjVu, TIFF and XPS and has been included as part of GNOME since 2005.

An open-source project, the latest update includes the following fixes and updates:

•    Performance regression found with GTK+ builds
•    Crashes that occurred when opening PDF documents containing screen annotations that didn’t have actions
•    When adding new annotations, right clicks are now ignored
•    Bookmark titles are now correctly rendered when containing special characters
•    Recent View mode now displays error messages
•    Multiple documents are now handled correctly when added from the command line
•    Crashes that occurred when rendering and thumbnailing operations were in use

In addition to fixes, languages included in the translation updates include:
•    Shantha kumar (ta)
•    Khaled Hosny (ar)
•    Jiro Matsuzawa (ja)
•    Inaki Larranaga Murgoitio (eu)
•    Gheyret Kenji (ug)

This latest update follows hot on the heels of the Bodhi Linux 3.10 “App Pack”, of which Evince is one of the default apps included, alongside Chromium, Filezilla and Geany Text Editor
