# CTAN update: nicematrix

Date: October 21, 2020 5:10:10 PM CEST

François Pantigny submitted an update to the
nicematrix
package.
Version number: 5.5 2020-10-20
License type: lppl1.3
Summary description: Improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices
with PGF
Announcement text:

In previous versions of 'nicematrix', it was necessary, in some circumstances, to put '\omit' before the keyword '\CodeAfter'. Now, one must never put 'omit' before '\CodeAfter' (thus, this version of 'nicematrix' is not strictly compatible with the previous ones even if there will be only very slight and easy modifications to do). Some bugs have been corrected concerning the tabular notes (command \tabularnote).

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;
- etc.

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