Okular update for Debian
Update 20200304: okular is updated in Debian, so I rebased my packages onto the Debian work, added my tab-restore patch, and made new packages!
The quest for a good tabbed pdf viewer lead me okular. While Gnome3 has gone they way of “keep it stupid keep it simple” to appeal to less versed users, KDE has gone the opposite direction and provides lots of bells and knobs to configure their application. Not surprisingly, I am tending more and more to KDE apps away from the redux stuff of Gnome apps.
Unfortunately, okular in Debian is horrible outdated. The version shipped in unstable is 17.12.2, there is a version 18.04 in experimental, and the latest from upstream git is 19.12.2. Fortunately, and thanks to the Debian maintainers, the packaging of the version in experimental can be adjusted without too much pain to the latest version, see this git repo.
