To test newer versions of evince I have installed evince via the snap store.
After installation via snap, the snap version can be started using its different program icon (I hope you can understand what I mean, I clicked the "9 dots" icon in the bottom of the task bar on the left, typed "evince", found two versions using different icons, and verified the version via "Show Details"). * 3.34.2+git4.91cbe4fe (from 2020-06-01) crashes with all the RFC PDF documents of this bug and bug #1849888 (which does cast some doubt about that bug being fixed in evince version 3.34.1-1). * 3.36.6+git2.ce03847a (from 2020-06-27) crashes as well. * 3.37.2+git65.582b220e (from 2020-06-30) does not start, so result for the problematic RFC PDFs. So at least _this_ bug is relevant to more recent versions of evince than the 18.04 LTS default. For the default latest/stable channel the snap package shows the following information: $ sudo snap info evince name: evince summary: Document viewer for popular document formats publisher: Ken VanDine store-url: https://snapcraft.io/evince contact: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evince/+bugs?field.tag=snap license: unset description: | This is a document viewer for the GNOME desktop.
