CTAN Update: hyperxmp

Date: September 14, 2012 8:07:53 PM CEST
On Thu, 13 Sep 2012 Scott Pakin submitted an update to the hyperxmp package. Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/hyperxmp Summary description: Embed XMP metadata within a LaTeX document. License type: lppl 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. Version 2.0 of hyperxmp represents a substantial effort by Heiko Oberdiek to make the package Unicode-compatible. In addition, more metadata are included in the XMP packet; elements containing commas can now be included in the author and keyword lists (albeit awkwardly); and a workaround for Adobe Acrobat's confusion between PDF and XMP author lists is now available.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/hyperxmp . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/hyperxmp (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

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.
