Summary description: Embed XMP metadata within a LaTeX document

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: authors, base URL,
contact telephone number/postal address/email address/URL, copyright 
statement, creation date, document identifier, document instance
identifier, document type, file format, keywords, language, LaTeX file 
name, license URL, metadata writer, PDF version, PDF-generating
tool, PDF/A compliance level and version, primary author's position or 
title, subject/summary, and title.  hyperxmp is compatible with
pdflatex, latex+dvips+ps2pdf, latex+dvipdfm, xelatex, and lualatex.

Version 3.4 of hyperxmp addresses some bugs identified by Gaƫtan Leurent 
and makes the package more robust.
