      Description

      It would be useful to also display the jclouds version on "bin/whirr version".

      Here is the relevant message from Andrew Phillips on jclouds-dev@:

      Issue 802 [1] added a JcloudsVersion class to jclouds/core which can be used to get version information about jclouds at runtime. It's designed to be used as follows:

      A. From outside jclouds:
      ------------------------
      Obtain a JcloudsVersion instance using JcloudsVersion.get(). Version information is read from META-INF/jclouds-version.properties (META-INF/maven/.../pom.properties would have been nice but isn't available from an IDE) which is included in the jclouds core JAR.

      If you need to simulate a different JcloudsVersion for testing purposes, you can place an overriding META-INF/jclouds-version.properties file in the classpath (e.g. src/test/resources) with the desired version.

      B. From inside jclouds:
      -----------------------
      Obtain a JcloudsVersion instance using Guice, binding it to JcloudsVersion.get(). When testing code that uses a JcloudsVersion, override this binding with an appropriate instance created with new JcloudsVersion("my-test-version").

      Thanks!
