If you're already using jhbuild and it's still building 2.32 apps, make
sure you're using the GNOME 3 module sets listed here:

http://git.gnome.org/browse/jhbuild/tree/modulesets

I don't use jhbuild myself or I'd tell you more about how to set that
up, but I'm sure Google can answer that.


Here's another, perhaps more convenient option:

Fedora desktop team just conducted a GNOME 3 test day and the live image
they produced for it includes GNOME Shell and Evolution 2.91.6:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2011-02-03_GNOME3_Alpha#Live_image

If you have a spare USB stick or blank DVD, make yourself a live image,
boot it, and you can play around in GNOME 3 with no risk to your system.
