How is this different from Mono?

The version published under Mono is a snapshot of the .NET Framework source code. While Microsoft is publishing the source code, they are not actively developing Mono, nor are they taking patches. Neither Mono, nor any Heroku Buildpack that uses Mono, is supported by Microsoft. To read more about the differences, check out http://www.mono-project.com/docs/about-mono/dotnet-integration/
