François Pantigny submitted an update to the
nicematrix
package.
Version number: 5.6 2020-11-08
License type: lppl1.3
Summary description: Improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices
with PGF
Announcement text:

The height and the depth of the mono-row blocks (created with \Block) are taken into account for the depth and the height of the current row. New command \NotEmpty to specify explicitely that a cell must be considered as non-empty (and so, a PGF/Tikz node is created in the cell).

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.
