CTAN update: hyperxmp

Date: September 25, 2020 4:50:31 PM CEST
Scott Pakin submitted an update to the hyperxmp package. Version number: 5.5 License type: lppl1.3c 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, lualatex, xelatex, latex+dvipdfm, and latex+dvips+Distiller. Version 5.5 of hyperref includes a number of improvements: * Automatically assign pdfnumpages and pdfbytes under pdfLaTeX and LuaLaTeX. * Automatically acquire the document's main language and list of secondary languages from both babel and polyglossia. * Introduce the pdfpubstatus package option, which supports the Journal Article Versions publication status. * Support hyperlinks and other markup in Koma-script's frommobilephone and fromphone. * Load hyperref automatically if the document does not do so explicitly. * Improve consistency between XMP and PDF metadata. * Correct the data type of xmpMM:RenditionClass. * List x-default alternatives before language-specific alternatives, as dictated by the XMP specification. * Correctly handle source files with spaces in their name. * Enable hyperxmp to be called from \AtEndPreamble, as is now done by the doclicense package. Thanks to Robin Schwab, Thorsten WiƟmann, Peter Dyballa, and Tommaso Pecorella for their contributions to this version of hyperref in the form of suggestions, bug reports, patches, and testing. A special thanks to Javier Bezos for updating his babel package for hyperxmp's benefit and for helping integrate babel functionality into hyperxmp.

hyperxmp – Embed XMP metadata within a document

XMP (eXtensible Metadata Platform) is a mechanism proposed by Adobe for embedding document metadata within the document itself. The metadata is 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 document authors to store XMP metadata in their documents as well.

The package 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: title, authors, primary author's title or position, metadata writer, subject/summary, keywords, copyright, license URL, document base URL, document identifier and instance identifier, language, source file name, PDF generating tool, PDF version, and contact telephone number/postal address/email address/URL. Hyperxmp currently embeds XMP only within PDF documents; it is compatible with pdf, XeLaTeX, +dvipdfm, and +dvips+ps2pdf.
