this is important for blender 2.90 release, we all need children particles working please :)
this needs to be high prio!

They are working with Object or Collection as render type, see:

It is just that Halo, Line and Path are not being drawn/rendered by Eevee nor Cycles with emitter particles.

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht), @Jacques Lucke (JacquesLucke): there was already the discussion in T65542: Particle trails not working about removing these (and this was more or less approved) should we just make a TODO task for this?

This could be marked as a known issue.

But really solving this should be quite simple, so maybe you are @Jacques Lucke (JacquesLucke) can just make a patch to remove these options?
