#4403: Keep constrained dofs in composition block (implemented by gassmoeller)
#4402: Modernize particle generation interface (implemented by gassmoeller)
#4401: [WIP] Postprocessor for “plateness” (implemented by elodie-kendall)
#4400: Change output format of particle test (implemented by gassmoeller; reviewed by gassmoeller)
#4399: Use fast path for particle advection in box (implemented by gassmoeller)
