I'm currently doing a lot of development with c++ and in Python. Much of this is with an embedded systems slant. Having access to things like the newest versions of GCC/Clang/etc and various libraries is very important to me, can these packages be found in the official repositories. Will I run into problems if I need to install more recent versions of these development packages?

Is Lubuntu is a viable platform for development?

You can not find latest versions for development but all you find will be stable(nothing beta or unresponsive). You can install latest versions of packages by adding other repositories or jou can just download and install latest versions packages. –  Sagar May 18 '14 at 18:56
