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 5.1 is a bug-fix release.
 Thanks to Robert Schlicht, Robin Schwab, and Ulrike Fischer
 for their respective bug reports.
