I've searched around Ask Ubuntu and the App Developer site, but I can't seem to find the answers to my questions.
I'm wanting to get back into programming, and I'd eventually like get into app development for Ubuntu, but I'm not sure where to get started.
Which version of Ubuntu is currently recommended for app development, especially for those wanting to publish their apps to the Software Centre?
Should app developers use the current LTS release, or, can any of the new releases be used?
Should developers use the 32-bit or 64-bit edition of Ubuntu, or does this not matter?
What effect would the above choices have on the eventual publication of an app?
