Daniel Dekany commented on FREEMARKER-92:

There's {{Configuration.getVersion()}} for that, but you should never use that 
to set the {{incompatible_improvements}}. New fixes and features are always 
enabled, except those that aren't fully backward compatible. If you are using 
{{Configuration.getVersion()}} as your {{incompatible_improvements}}, then you 
application can break when FreeMarker is updated. The whole point of this 
mechanism that we can still fix things that can in theory break existing 
applications, because using a fix value, like {{Configuration.VERSION_2_3_27}}, 
protects existing applications from such fixes.
