License type: lppl1.3
Summary description: Improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices with PGF
Announcement text:

It's now possible to use '&' in a \Block in order to split a block in sub-blocks. New keys 'p' and 'j' for the command \Block. New PGF/TikZ nodes i.1, i.2, i.3, etc.

## 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.
