Build instructions do not appear to work in src package

Issue #327 resolved
Former user created an issue

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Download the src package from
  2. Run gradle wrapper (Is the wrapper script not normally distributed to ensure the right version of gradle is installed?)
  3. Run ./gradlew or ./gradlew release as per the README.
  4. Nothing happens; the latter gives an error that release is not a Task.

    The gradle wrapper is included in the jastadd2 repository, so ./gradlew should work in a fresh checkout.

    I do get an error when I run ./gradlew release, but the error is not that the task is missing:

    * What went wrong:
    Execution failed for task ':release'.
    > You should add -PnewVersion=<VERSION> so the release task embeds the correct version string!

    We should update the README to include -PnewVersion=XX for the release example.
