François Pantigny submitted an update to the
nicematrix
package.
Version number: 5.16 2021-06-20
License type: lppl1.3
Summary description: Improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices with PGF
Announcement text:

The PGF/Tikz corresponding to the contents of the cells (with the syntax 'i-j' where i is the number of row and j the number of column) are now available in the \CodeBefore when the key 'create-cell-nodes' of that \CodeBefore is used.

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.
