Many thanks for all your great work. 

The section at the bottom of the release notes page for mono version 3.0 is
basically all nonsense. 

says that 
http://www.go-mono.com/mono-downloads/download.html contains "pre-compiled
packages for Linux, Solaris, MacOS X and Windows" - given that this comes at
the bottom of a page titled "Release Notes for Mono 3.0" it is reasonable to
expect this statement to refer to Mono version 3 

But as at today, the downloads page only contains packages for version 2.1,
and a version 3.0 beta package for MacOSX

In addition to which, as Akira says, in order to compile from the sources
the release notes tells us that we should start by compiling
libgdiplus-3.0.tar.gz ... which is nowhere to be found.

I have been trying to decipher the absence of documentation, find out the
location of referenced source files, and get mono 3 to compile for 2 days
now... its getting very frustrating.

I'm sure people on who are on the inside with this project have no trouble
with this... because you know where the sources are, and you don't need the
documentation to tell you how to do it, and don't need the convenience of
pre-compiled sources...

But for the rest of us it would be really helpful if this could be sorted

... Very grateful!
