CTAN Update: hyperxmp

Scott Pakin submitted an update to the

                hyperxmp

package.

Version number: 2.6
License type: lppl1.3

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.  The current
 version of hyperxmp can embed the following metadata as XMP:
 authors, base URL, contact telephone number/postal
 address/email address/URL, copyright statement, creation date,
 document identifier, document instance identifier, file format,

CTAN update: drm

Donald P. Goodman submitted an update to the

                drm

package.

Version number: 2.2
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: A complete family of fonts written in Metafont.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Version 2.2, submitted to CTAN on 24 September 2014, contained some
significant changes.  Some kerning fixes; the introduction of a
short-tailed "Q" in the roman fonts, accessed via \drmshortq; and the
introduction of superior and inferior figures, the former being the
default (unless |nodefault| or |notextdefault| is selected) for
footnote numbering.  Did the usual kerning tweaks.  Finally, I fixed
the acute and grave accents, which in a number of cases were
inexplicably backwards.
