Summary description: Embed XMP metadata within a LaTeX document.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
XMP (eXtensible Metadata Platform) is a mechanism proposed
by Adobe for embedding document metadata within the document
itself.  The metadata is designed to be easy to extract,
even by programs that are oblivious to the document's file
format.  Most of Adobe's applications store XMP metadata
when saving files.  Now, with the hyperxmp package, it is
trivial for LaTeX document authors to store XMP metadata in
their documents as well.

hyperxmp integrates seamlessly with hyperref and requires
virtually no modifications to documents that already exploit
hyperref's mechanisms for specifying PDF metadata.  The
current version of hyperxmp can embed the following metadata
as XMP: author, title, subject, keywords, copyright, and
license URL.  hyperxmp currently embeds XMP only within PDF
documents but is compatible with pdflatex, latex+dvipdfm,
xelatex, and latex+dvips+ps2pdf.

Version 1.2 adds support for a few elements of the Photoshop
schema, support for xelatex, and compatibility with the
ngerman package.
