CTAN update: hyperxmp

Scott Pakin submitted an update to the

                hyperxmp

package.

Version number: 2.5
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,
keywords, language, LaTeX file name, license URL, metadata writer, PDF
version, PDF-generating tool, PDF/A compliance level and version,
