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 3.5 of hyperxmp gives the user the ability to explicitly specify a 
UUID for the document rather than let hyperxmp generate it randomly.
