Dear all, I want to simulate the passive joint(sping-damper) using in my model. But what i found in the joint setting is just <damping> tag, without stiffness tag as expected. Any suggest to that idea? Thank so much!

Here my joint:

<joint type='revolute' name='Joint'>
 <pose>0 0.0 0.0 0 0.0 0</pose>
  <xyz>0 1 0</xyz>

We added spring stiffness tags to gazebo 3.1 in pull request 1117. See the changes to the springdampertest.world for an example of the syntax.
