Testing and sid versions of Okular are 17.12.
Ubuntu seems to have been using 19.12 for quite some time.
I wanted to know if there are some specific issues with this package.
It's an application I'm using really a lot, and it is worrying.
There is no alternative to this application to me since it is the only one 
allowing for pdf annotations.
I myself am using Okular 18.04 from experimental, which however is from 15 
months ago. Also, since experimental, it has poor integration; for example, 
okular-extra-backends is not available for this version.
