Summary description: Drop-in replacement for the `ocgx' package; adds support for dvips+ps2pdf, XeLaTeX, dvipdfmx

Announcement text:
Package `ocgx2' replaces the now obsolete `fixocgx' package.

The intent of `ocgx2' is to be a drop-in replacement for the already existing package `ocgx' by Paul Gaborit.

It re-implements the functionality of the `ocg', `ocgx' and `ocg-p' packages and adds support for all known engines and 
back-ends including:

   *  LaTeX --> dvips --> ps2pdf/Distiller
   *  (Xe)LaTeX --> (x)dvipdfmx
   *  pdfLaTeX, luaLaTeX

To enable dvipdfmx support, pass `dvipdfmx' globally as a class option.

Also, it adds some minor improvements, such as package options, remembering option settings of re-opened ocgs, correct 
behaviour of ocg switching links that were themselves placed on layers, compatibility with the `animate' and `media9'
