Xbuild 2.10.9 generates an error message with the GetAssemblyIdentity task:

: error : Error initializing task GetAssemblyIdentity: Not registered task GetAssemblyIdentity.
	Task "GetAssemblyIdentity" execution -- FAILED

The same project file works fine with MSBuild 3.5 on Windows XP.  Does Xbuild require an additional Import element in the project file?

This issue still exists in Mono 3.2.6 / xbuild

Is there a workaround? I need to get the version of an assembly in my msbuild script.
