You cannot identify which version of mono implements WCF as it is too 
huge to have implemented within a single version.

There isn't.

Though, I can describe a rough history:
- At mono 2.4, we had very primitive HTTP client and service working. 
And there
   was a lot of fragment of code such as TCP binding that partially worked.
- At mono 2.6, it had polished code that served moonlight's HTTP client 
   scenarios, as well as improved HTTP service and several non-WS-* 
stack such
   as NetTcp and NetPeer. Though they needed significant amount of bugfixes.
   WebHttpBinding was also there.
- At mono 2.8, stability on lots of non-WS-* stack are in, as well as 
some new stuff
   such as WCF Routing. Actually WS-Security has been improved too, 
though I was
   stuck at .NET's hidden WS-Trust implementation (sslnego/spnego).
