Due to changes in poppler which bumped the soname library, atril in my MSB project needs to be rebuilt or otherwise you will not be able to load PDF files. I have uploaded the rebuilt version in both repositories (mix and full GTK+3 build), but i didn't bump the version nor build number. Please use upgradepkg --reinstall option.
