Changes in the Core Development Team

Our main developer Simon Spannagel recently moved from CERN to DESY, Germany, remaining within the field of silicon detector research. We are thus very happy that he took his responsibilities with him and remains main developer of Allpix2 . In addition, we welcome Paul Schütze (DESY) in the main developer team, who has been an early-stage adopter and long-term active developer.
