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 

Version 5.2 of hyperxmp is a minor update.  The package now supports PDF 
2.0+ when writing the PDF version number to the XMP packet and provides a 
new option, pdfidentifier, that records a unique identifier for the 
document (DOI, ISBN, etc.).  Thanks to Ulrike Fischer and Niklas Beisert 
for their suggestions regarding this version of hyperxmp.
