Lack of updates

Hi guys,

as you may have noticed I haven't posted any new stuff recently. The main reason for this is that I'm trying to get my Master's thesis ready (theoretical physics) hopefully before the end of this year, and working on it leaves very little time for fun stuff such as coding particles. Also the biggest thing on my current particles todo-list is probably to bring back reactor particles much better than they were in Blender 2.4x and judging from the initial looks this will be somewhat more difficult that I had thought. It will require a few relatively big changes to the particles code internals, and changes of this magnitude are just not possible with the coding time of max few hours a day. However when I do have the time for this the end result will in addition to much nicer reactor particles for example allow for proper (animateable) emission frequency instead of the not so versatile particles amount parameter.

Anyways just wanted to let everybody know I haven't disappeared anywhere, just busy with my studies.
