Version '''1.0''' was released on April {{date|27}}, 2015. The update is known as "We Have Liftoff!", referencing the fact that 1.0 is the official release.
== New ==

=== [[Atmosphere|Aerodynamics]] ===
* Complete overhaul of the flight model.
* Lift is now correctly calculated and applied for all lift-generating parts.
* Drag is now pre-calculated automatically based on part geometry, and applied based on part orientation in flight.

* Stack-mounted parts can occlude each other for drag calculations.
* Lift-Induced drag now properly simulated.
* Stalls are now properly simulated.
* A new body-lift system meaning parts can induce lift even if they are not designed to do so.
