    Hello. I've updated my unity from Unity 2018.2.6f1 (64-bit) to Unity 2018.3.0b4 (64-bit) and upon updating my project, I got this error

    The type or namespace name 'ParticleSystem' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

    The project was just working before updating Unity and my scripts are fine.
    I have some of the Built-In packages turned off in my project(Particle System package is enabeld).
    "Wind" was one of the packages I've disabled and it seems when "Wind" package is enabled, I no longer get the error message above. I think it's a bug
