I was just whining about something like this missing in the Gnome 2.12 beta posting ;) Good summary, even though the text sometimes sounds like coming from a marketing droid ("Now 20% more flavor! Developed in our Swiss research lab, this product gives you whiter teeth AND smoother skin!"). I hope Evince can match the speed and usability of the new Kpdf, it sure looks promising. I have been using gstreamer for while -- mostly with amaroK -- and even though it is a very promising concept, I am not quite sure if it is ready to take over for Xine yet. Anyone seen a roadmap that says when gstreamer should be 1.0/stable?

Evince should match Kpdf pretty well. They use the same backend, poppler. Evince uses cairo too though, so there might be some speed difference from that.
