PIConGPU 0.4.2: CPU Plugin Performance

Huebl, Axel; Widera, René; Worpitz, Benjamin; Pausch, Richard; Burau, Heiko; Garten, Marco; Starke, Sebastian; Grund, Alexander; Debus, Alexander; Matthes, Alexander; Bastrakov, Sergei; Steiniger, Klaus; Göthel, Ilja; Rudat, Sophie; Kelling, Jeffrey; Bussmann, Michael

This release fixes a performance regression for energy histograms and phase space plugins on CPU with our OpenMP backend on CPU. At least OpenMP 3.1 is needed to benefit from this. Additionally, several small documentation issues have been fixed and the energy histogram python tool forgot to return the first iteration.

Please refer to our ChangeLog for a full list of features, fixes and user interface changes before getting started.

Thanks to Axel Huebl, René Widera, Sebastian Starke, and Marco Garten for contributions to this release!
