B.72 VersionTask

The VersionTask increments a three-part version number from a given file and writes it back to the file. The resulting version number is also published under supplied property.

The version number in the text file is expected in the format of Major.Minor.Bugfix (e.g. 1.3.2). Alternatively you can use 'v' as prefix (e.g. v1.3.2).
