Resume Wikipedia de Visionneur de documents

Visionneur de documents ou Evince est un logiciel libre de visualisation des documents PDF et PostScript pour l’environnement de bureau GNOME. Le but d’Evince est de fournir un unique visionneur de documents, fiable, pour l’environnement GNOME.
Le projet Evince démarra comme une simple réécriture du code de gpdf. Evince est désormais le visionneur de documents par défaut sous l’environnement GNOME, et pourrait, à terme être remplacé par GNOME Documents, disposant des mêmes fonctions.
