package.

This package adds new fields of "name" type to the standard entry types of

For example:
- maineditor, for a  <at> collection, means the editor of  <at> mvcollection, and 
not the editor of the  <at> collection.
- bookineditor, for a  <at> bookinbook, means the editor of the entry, and not, 
as the standard editor field, the editor of the volume in
which the entry is contained.

More new "name" fields could be added, if asked and needed.

CTAN Update: hyperxmp

Scott Pakin submitted an update to the

                hyperxmp

package.

Version:  2.8  2016-04-05
License:  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.

 Version 2.8 of hyperxmp fixes a bug that caused inadvertent
 lowercasing of non-Latin letters appearing in the metadata
 when using XeLaTeX orLuaLaTeX.
 Thanks to Leonid Sinev for reporting the problem.

New on CTAN: artthreads

Donald P. Story submitted the

                artthreads

package.

Version:  1.0  2016-04-04
License:  lppl1

Summary description:  Support for article threads

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

 Through the commands of the artthread package, create PDF article threads,
 a concept/feature of Adobe Reader/Acrobat that has been around since the
 product's beginning. The use of article threads typically only makes sense
 in a document in which the text is in a multi-column format.

 Set the article threads after the composition of the document is completed.
 The method of setting the threads is very visual, not automatic as in the
 threadcol package of Scott Pakin (available for pdftex only).

 The artthreads package supports all drivers: dvips, pdflatex (which
 includes lualatex), dvipdfm, dvipdfmx, and xelatex.

New on CTAN: fetchbibpes

D. P. Story submitted the

                fetchbibpes

package.

Version number: 1.6 2016-03-24
License type: lppl1

Summary description: Creates a DB of Bible verses from e-Sword, then
fetches them on command

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

This bundle provides two packages, bibpes and fetchbibpes. This pair of
packages was motivated by a friend, who was preparing Bible studies
lessons using a combination of the application e-Sword
(http://www.e-sword.net/) and LaTeX. He wanted a `database' of Bible
packages from which he could simply `fetch' passages into the LaTeX
source file. 1. Use bibpes to develop a database of verses. 2. Use
fetchbibpes to fetch the verses.
