[DFTB-Plus-User] What do the Pressure indicate?

Dear xiaobao,

the difference is due to the data in md.out including the contribution
to the pressure from the kinetic energy of the atomic motion in the
system, while the standard output only shows the virial presure. We will
clarify the labels in the output data for the next release.

Regards

Ben
