This is a temporary package, which is used during a test phase to load the new PDF management code of LaTeX. The new PDF management code offers backend independant interfaces to central PDF dictionaries, tools to create annotations, form Xobjects, to embed files, and to handle PDF standards. The code is provided, during a testphase, as an independant package to allow users and package authors to safely test the code. At a later stage it will be integrated into the LaTeX kernel (or in parts into permanent support packages), and the current testphase bundle will be removed.
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
