François Pantigny submitted an update to the
nicematrix
package.
Version number: 4.3 2020-06-12
License type: lppl1.3
Summary description: Improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices with
PGF
Announcement text:

With this version, the horizontal centering of the content of a '\Block' is correct even when an instruction such as '!{\qquad}' has been used in the preamble. It's now possible to use '\Block' in the 'last row' (see : tex.stackexchange.com/questions/548937/nicematrix-block-does-not-work-with-last-row-option)

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;
- etc.

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