[XeTeX] hyperref broken??

I just updated MiKTeX; I noticed that both hyperref and memoir were 
included in the update.  Now my book (which uses memoir) won't compile.

The following lines have been in my preamble for months without change:

	pdftitle={Document Preparation for Classical Languages},
	pdfauthor={David J.Perry},
	pdfsubject={Creating text in classical, biblical, and medieval studies},
	pdfkeywords={Latin, Greek, Hebrew, classics, medieval, biblical, fonts, 
Unicode, OpenType},
	pdfpagemode=UseOutlines,, bookmarks, bookmarksopen,
	colorlinks, linkcolor=black,citecolor=black,urlcolor=black,	
	breaklinks=true  %allows URLs to break
	plainpages=false  %makes page anchors match the actual formatting 
(roman vs arabic numbers)
	pdfpagelabels=true  %makes page numbers in PDF viewer same as on page 
(roman vs arabic)

Now I get this:
! Package hyperref Error: Wrong DVI mode driver option `hypertex',
(hyperref)                because XeTeX is running.

So I read the latest hyperref doc.  I saw the section about the various 
drivers and so forth, but it's not clear to me how to fix this. 
hyperref is obviously detecting that xetex is running, which the manual 
says it will do.  I tried removing the reference to 'hypertex' in the 
hope that it could find the right driver, but that just gave a lot more 
meaningless (to me) errors.

Any advice about getting this to work with XeLaTeX?

Thanks - David
