Summary description: Improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices with PGF
Announcement text:

It's now possible to type `\begin{pNiceMatrix} a&b\\ c&d \end{pNiceMatrix}^{2}` with the expected result (for the exponent). Correction of some other small bugs.

## 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;
- etc.

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