CTAN update: nicematrix

Date: September 17, 2018 9:13:04 PM CEST
François Pantigny submitted an update to the nicematrix package. Version number: 2.1.1 2018-09-16 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Several features to improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices with TikZ Announcement text:
Before this version, the utilisation of nicematrix with Tikz externalization was leading to errors. Now, Tikz externalization is deactivated in the environments of nicematrix. In any case, it's not possible to externalize the Tikz elements constructed by nicematrix because they use the options "overlay" and "remember picture".
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/nicematrix More information is at https://www.ctan.org/pkg/nicematrix

nicematrix – Improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices with TikZ

This package provides new environments similar to the environments matrix, pmatrix, bmatrix, etc. of amsmath and mathtools.

In these new environments, a TikZ  node is created for each cell of the matrix.

The user can use these nodes directly but nicematrix also provides commands which use these nodes to draw continuous dotted lines from two cells of the matrix (the result is more aesthetic than the classical result obtained using \cdots, \vdots, \ddots, etc.).

This package also provides a control over the width of the columns and the possibility to add an exterior line and an exterior column.

nicematrix requires and loads amsmath, array, expl3, l3keys2e, xparse, tikz, as well as the TikZ library fit.
