CTAN Update: hyperxmp

Date: April 29, 2016 7:36:13 AM CEST
Scott Pakin submitted an update to the hyperxmp package. Version: 2.9 2016-04-27 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. 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, document type, file format, keywords, language, LaTeX file name, license URL, metadata writer, PDF version, PDF-generating tool, PDF/A compliance level and version, primary author's position or title, subject/summary, and title. hyperxmp is compatible with pdflatex, latex+dvips+ps2pdf, latex+dvipdfm, xelatex, and lualatex. Version 2.9 of hyperxmp improves PDF/A support by providing control over the PDF/A part and conformance ID; embedding IPTC metadata in a more validation-friendly manner; and including even empty author, title, and description metadata when PDF/A is being generated. Thanks to Leonid Sinev for his help with these. In addition, hyperxmp v2.9 lets authors indicate the logical document type (e.g., text or image) in the XMP metadata.

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.

Version 2.2 of the package added support for the IPTC Photo Metadata schema. It allows \xmpcomma and \xmpquote to be used in any hyperxmp option, not only those that require special treatment of commas. And it introduces an \xmplinesep macro that controls how multiline fields are represented in the XMP packet.

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.
