Object disapearing

Hi all.Can anyone show me how to always see the animated object while applying static particle in blender 2.40 like in the blender cvs 2.37a.It seem like the button show emitter or render emitter mesh also has been take off in blender 2.40.

Yes, but I think that patch will soon be back. To answer your question though, make a Shft-D copy and delete the Particle Effect on the copy. Then make the Copy the child of the original.
