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.

Version 2.0 of hyperxmp represents a substantial effort by Heiko Oberdiek to 
make the package Unicode-compatible.  In addition, more metadata are included in 
the XMP packet; elements containing commas can now be included in the author and 
keyword lists (albeit awkwardly); and a workaround for Adobe Acrobat's confusion 
between PDF and XMP author lists is now available.
