# CTAN update: nicematrix

Date: October 7, 2020 3:04:35 PM CEST

François Pantigny submitted an update to the
nicematrix
package.
Version number: 5.4 2020-10-06
License type: lppl1.3
Summary description: Improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices with
PGF
Announcement text:

This version changes the behaviour of the mono-column blocks (created by '\Block'). * For these blocks, the natural width of the content is taken into account to compute the width of the column. * The specification of alignment in the preamble (l, c or r) is taken into account for these blocks. * the specifications of font present in the pre-specifier '>{...}' are taken into account in these blocks.

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

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Erik Braun

## nicematrix – Improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices with PGF

This package is based on the package array. It creates PGF/TikZ nodes under the cells of the array and uses these nodes to provide functionalities to construct tabulars, arrays and matrices.

Among the features :

- continuous dotted lines for the mathematical matrices;
- exterior rows and columns (so-called border matrices);
- control of the width of the columns;
- tools to color rows and columns with a good PDF result;
- blocks of cells;
- tabular notes;
- etc.

The package requires and loads
l3keys2e,
array,
amsmath,
pgfcore,
and the module `shapes` of
PGF.
