Languages Upgraded

Greetings everybody,
We have some good news 🙂 We have upgrade the compiler versions for the languages mentioned below. After receiving quite a number of requests for supporting C++11, we have  also added a new language option for C++11 along with this upgrade. You should be seeing it in the language selection list while submitting the code. These are the languages and the upgraded version numbers.
