The initial release of Mono 3.0 came out in October
The release you're talking about in July was probably Mono 3.2 :)

Something like this (fixing any typos I've made):
cd /usr/local/src
wget http://download.mono-project.com/sources/mono/mono-3.2.1.tar.bz2
tar jxf mono-3.2.1.tar.bz2
cd mono-3.2.1
./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/mono-3.2
make install

Then you can use /opt/mono-3.2.1/bin/mono for any apps that you want to use
Mono 3.2.1. Apps currently using Mono 2.10 will continue to do so unless
you explicitly change them.

I use GNU Stow <http://www.gnu.org/software/stow/> to manage my Mono
versions. They're all stored at /usr/local/stow/ in directories per version
(so /usr/local/stow/mono-3.2.1 for example, similar to the /opt paths
above). Stow handles creating symlinks in /usr/local/bin to the version you
want to use by default.
