I am new to Ubuntu but I need to do some work with Mono. Mono came packaged with the OS, but it's not the latest version and the Update Manager says the system's all up to date. How do I go about getting the latest version of Mono?

Mono is a key framework in Ubuntu, and as such, isn't eligible for officially updating (in case something breaks & causes loads of apps to suffer)

If you're VERY careful, you can compile your own copy to a non-system location, for specific purposes
