Scott Pakin sub­mit­ted an up­date to the hy­per­xmp pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 3.2 Li­cense type: 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. Rel­a­tive to ver­sion 3.0, ver­sion 3.2 of hy­per­xmp sup­ports lu­ala­tex v0.85+, leaves only the XMP packet un­com­pressed when­ever pos­si­ble, sup­ports hy­per­ref's pdfcre­ation­date and pdf­mod­date op­tions, in­tro­duces a new pdfmeta­date op­tion, al­lows both XMP and PDF date for­mats to be used in both pdf­date and pdfmeta­date, and in­cludes hours and min­utes in de­fault dates in xe­la­tex and or­di­nary la­tex.

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.
