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 are 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: title, authors, primary author's title or position,
metadata writer, subject, keywords, copyright, and license
URL.  hyperxmp currently embeds XMP only within PDF
documents but is compatible with pdflatex,
latex+dvips+ps2pdf, latex+dvipdfm, xelatex, and lualatex.

Version 1.3 fixes a bug caused by the use of hyperref's
"unicode" option, adds a new "pdfmetalang" option for
specifying the language in which the metadata is written,
cleans up some of the code, and updates much of the
