Evince got form support in 2.20, and was originally supposed to get
annotation support at the same time. Unfortunately, that was pushed
back, and according  to the roadmap[1], it is now scheduled for 2.24
(due this fall).  In the meantime, I believe Adobe Reader supports
annotations and there is a native Linux version.
