Summary description:  LaTeX PDF management testphase bundle

Announcement text:
 LaTeX PDF management testphase bundle

 This package is used during a test phase to load the new PDF management code
 of LaTeX.

 The new PDF management code offers backend independent interfaces to central
 PDF dictionaries, tools to create annotations, form Xobjects, to embed
 files, and to handle PDF standards.

 The code is provided during a test phase as independent package to allow
 users and package authors to safely test the code. At a later stage it will
 be integrated into the LaTeX kernel (or in parts into permanent support
 packages) and the current test phase bundle will be removed.
