Jarmo Pertman commented on WTR-458:
-----------------------------------

That's because there's not a constant Watir::IE::VERSION starting from 1.6.6 anymore. See the following irb session:

irb(main):001:0> require "watir"
=> true
irb(main):003:0> Watir::IE.constants.grep /VERSION/
=> []
irb(main):004:0> VERSION
=> "1.8.6"
irb(main):005:0> Watir::IE::VERSION
(irb):5: warning: toplevel constant VERSION referenced by Watir::IE::VERSION
=> "1.8.6"

So, actually a VERSION constant, which is a top-level one - a Ruby one, will be outputted.

Is there any actual use-case where this version should be accessible?
