Annealing with NPT_F

Thanks everybody for all the suggestions.

I am good then as I am using default GPW for which stress tensor works

Our original motivation was to find a way to do variable cell
optimization using a simulated annealing techinque on NPT_F.
Our understanding is, annealing pulls energy from the particles-NHC
system freezing them, the barostat-NHC system is currently

If the annealing is extended (we will help testing it), is this a
viable way of doing variable-cell optimization? How far are you in
implemnting the actual cell optimization module?
