Yes, it does: texdoc 0.61

Hmmm, no. texdoc opens pdfs here on KDE4 now with okular. However, setting a 
different default application for pdf has no effect. So, while

$ kde-open blabla.pdf 

opens blabla.pdf now in, let say gv, a 

$ texdoc texdoc 

still opens the pdf in okular. So it seems for me, that not kde-open is used 
here, but okuar explicitly?
