LIGGGHTS 2.2.3: (released 29 November 2012)

+ Extended fix adapt so it can handle atom-style variables for particle growth/shrinkage. Also added the example "packing" that was already there in 1.5.

However, there are some restrictions in 2.2.3 (see below) which will be relaxed over time:
+ fix breakparticle/force is not yet available
