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 5.3 of hyperxmp improves the automatic detection of document metadata.  Much of
the acmart and scrlttr2 metadata are now autodetected, as are languages specified using
the polyglossia package.  Thanks to Robin Schwab for testing and suggestions.  hyperxmp
v5.3 also reduces its dependency on the atenddvi package, as recommended by Nelson Posse
Lago. ----------------------------------------------------------------------
