Learnt LaTeX while in placement in my third year in 1999 when my assignment was to work on a massive code but was only given an laptop to do it, so had to find something to do during the long hours the thing took to compile, and solitaire doesn't remain fun for that long. I haven't look back since. Now a researcher at the University of Bristol. All my outputs are in LaTeX from papers to presentations to posters.

comment Is the filename of an image preserved in the final PDF?
@Christian I was not really implying that you would keep comments in the metadata but rather that the software you use to create the image may indeed put the filename or other information in there without you knowing

comment Is the filename of an image preserved in the final PDF?
in addition to that, when using pdftex or luatex, raster files such as .jpg org .png do not seem to be included with there filenames however I have only tried with files without metadata, I haven't tried with files with exif or other type of metadata.

comment Inconsolata missing after MiKTeX update
@krlmlr you should not have to resort to this when loading the package as an up to date version will offer both zi4.sty and inconsolata.sty. This was done back mid 2013 after a few complaints I think. As I reported in my answer, the package maintainer says that the old and new package have incompatibilities but I do not have a list of them. there are definitely new options in the new package but I don't know if options from the old one have different meaning in the new one.

comment Problem with \hfill and hyphenation
alternatively to @egreg's link, you can try to reduce the occurrences of hyphenation by using the microtype package. In your mwe it works.

comment LaTeX class for europass cv (2013 template)
I have been looking at that myself and started work on a new europecv package with the new template but real work got in the way. I have made the new icons into a font and was looking at either reworking the current package or using moderncv as a staring point. The problem with the current europecv package is the lack of straight forward support for things like xelatex/lualatex/biblatex... Other things I would like to correct is fact that the current package does not use the standard sectioning method. So yeah work in progress from my part and maybe someone else will beat me to it

comment Is there a disadvantage to using natbib=true with biblatex?
as far as I know, the natbib option with biblatex only provides the commands from natbib, the actual processing is done by biblatex and is not influenced by the option.

comment Serious problems with tabularx table layout
your code doesn't compile for several reasons however you are not saying it doesn't so I am not entirely sure what your problem actually is. for information, with the code provided: you are trying to use tabularx but are loading the tabu package; you are using toprule/(c)midrule/bottomrule without loading the booktabs package.

comment Bundle PDF+LaTeX source and open with Preview
There is a package that was released on ctan last month (embedall) that could provide an acceptable solution to your problem. I haven't tried it myself but was very interested to see it.

comment Table width and Header
Also note that the any text after a % character is considered a comment and not parsed. you should replace the instances of % with the escaped version \%.
