This release adds updates and new HPC system templates. Important bug fixes include I/O work-arounds for issues in OpenMPI 2.0-4.0 (mainly with HDF5), guards for particle creation with user-defined profiles, a fixed binomial current smoothing, checks for the number of devices in grid distributions and container (Docker & Singularity) modernizations.
Please refer to our ChangeLog for a full list of features, fixes and user interface changes before getting started.
