 passive and active rotations were not clearly distinguished and partly mixed up. Fixed with following convention: Rotation conversions do not switch implicitly from active to passive or vice versa except when converting to or from any Euler type (Euler angles or Euler axis/angles). Those functions expect a passive rotation (i.e., change of coordinate system) as input if converting to Euler type and return a passive rotation if converting from Euler type.
New features
 MSC.Mentat integration featuring a dedicated DAMASK menu in Jobs > Run
 added possibility for multilevel inclusion of files in *.config and loadcase files by using »
{path/to/include}
« statements

 script to convert data format of VPFFT, EPFFT (R.A. Lebensohn) to that used by DAMASK spectral solver (geom, material.config)

grid

dimension
size
 added library to write out VTK file from Fortran (Lib_VTK_IO)

mapping
of multiple grains:

average
, avg
, or mean
gives average over Ngrains (default and former behavior)

or sum
gives sum over Ngrains

, make
, and make
install
in DAMASK/code folder
