One of the new features of version 5.0 is the Depth bias property of the particle layer. With this property you can move the particles a bit closer to or further away from the camera.

For example when attaching sparkles to a text layer, you want all the particles to be rendered in front of the text. You can do this with a negative Depth bias value.

But when attaching a glow effect you want all the particles to be rendered behind the text. You can achieve this by using a positve Depth bias value.
