It is a pity that only based

It is a pity that only based on geometry. The next step is the conversion of the particle geometry. (such as making a thinking particles)

You actually have 1.007, this was an error on our behalf which has been fixed(thanks to you!). We forgot to update the file that identifies the version. You can update again to clear the false alarm or wait for the next release. I apologize for the inconvenience.
