# CTAN update: nicematrix

Date: October 30, 2019 9:11:46 PM CET

François Pantigny submitted an update to the
nicematrix
package.
Version number: 3.6 2019-10-29
License type: lppl1.3
Summary description: Several features to improve the typesetting of
mathematical matrices with TikZ
Announcement text:

Two LaTeX counters iRow and jCol are now available to the user in the cells of the environments. A command \normalbaselines has been added at the beginning of the environments of nicematrix (it should have been done a long time ago). The code is faster in several circumstancies.

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 Manfred Lotz CTAN is run entirely by volunteers and supported by TeX user groups. Please join a user group or donate to one, see https://ctan.org/lugs .

## 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.
