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.  hyperxmp can embed a wide variety of
metadata as XMP, including the list of authors, document title, contact
information (telephone number, postal address, email address, etc.),
copyright statement, keywords, natural language, and much more.
hyperxmp is compatible with pdflatex, latex+dvips+ps2pdf,
latex+dvipdfm, xelatex, and lualatex.

Version 4.0 of hyperxmp makes some substantial improvements to PDF/A
compatibility.  It also adds support for numerous metadata defined in
the PRISM Basic schema: book edition, DOI, file size in bytes, ISBN,
ISSN, issue number, page count, page ranges, type of parent
publication, URL of the document, and volume number.
