# CTAN update: nicematrix

New option 'small' to draw matrices like the matrices constructed by the environment 'smallmatrix' of LaTeX (with, of course, the functionnalities of the package nicematrix).

This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/nicematrix More information is at https://www.ctan.org/pkg/nicematrix

## nicematrix – Several features to improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices with TikZ

This package provides new environments similar to the environments
`matrix`, `pmatrix`, `bmatrix`, etc.
of amsmath and mathtools.

In these new environments, a TikZ node is created for each cell of the matrix.

The user can use these nodes directly but `nicematrix`
also provides commands which use these nodes to draw continuous
dotted lines from two cells of the matrix (the result is more
aesthetic than the classical result obtained using
`\cdots`, `\vdots`, `\ddots`, etc.).

This package also provides a control over the width of the columns and the possibility to add an exterior line and an exterior column.

`nicematrix` requires and loads
amsmath,
array,
expl3,
l3keys2e,
xparse,
tikz,
as well as the TikZ library `fit`.
