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.

Relative to version 3.0, version 3.2 of hyperxmp supports lualatex
v0.85+, leaves only the XMP packet uncompressed whenever possible,
supports hyperref's pdfcreationdate and pdfmoddate options, introduces
a new pdfmetadate option, allows both XMP and PDF date formats to be
used in both pdfdate and pdfmetadate, and includes hours and minutes in
default dates in xelatex and ordinary latex.
