Blender, Yafray and Particle Effects

My question is simple, does yafray support particle effects? I have been trying to integrate some particle effects into an image for some time and nothing is working with yafray.

I need to use Yafray because of caustics, is there a way to get particle effects like clouds in also?


Yafray does not support particles yet, to my understanding.

So if thats the case, any body know how to get psudo particle effects into yafray? I guess i may have to decide between caustics and smoke.
