PDF fonts not rendered correctly in Evince

Bug Description

In some PDFs, the fonts are not rendered correctly. I have one such PDF which looks perfect in Adobe Reader in Ubuntu 13.10 but looks bad in Evince. I have tried installing fonts from software center and Synaptic Package Manager, but seems of no use.

Same problem is there in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Anirban Ghosh, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If so, could you please provide an example document that demonstrates this problem?

Yes, the issue is still present as of now (jan 12,2015) in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
Here is a sample document : http://www.filedropper.com/discretemathematicsanditsapplications7thedition

I have updated the system to the latest.

Anirban Ghosh, using evince from Wily, I'm not able to discern a difference between it and other PDF readers via the attached document.

Hence, would you need a backport to a release prior to Wily, or may this be marked Status Invalid?
