newpax – Experimental package to extract and reinsert PDF annotations

The package is based on the pax package from Heiko Oberdiek. It offers a lua-based alternative to the java based pax.jar to extract the annotations from a PDF.

The resulting file can then be used together with pax.sty. It also offers an extended style which works with all three major engines.
