Db4Object has released version 6.0 of their open source object database. The product allows data to be stored at the object level instead of in a relational format. Compatibility with relational databases can be achieved using the db4o replication system. Native support is provided for both Java and .NET environments. Among the enhancements in this release:

The other major change with this release is broader open source licensing. Db40o comes in both a GPL and commerical version (similar to mySQL). Licensing has been changed for the open source version to allow compatibility with projects licensed under Apache, LGPL, BSD, EPL, and others.

SQL? by Sam Smoot

Was the SQL query interface ever released? I thought I remembered hearing around the 4.x time-frame that the 5.0 release would include it. This so that a db4o server could be used as a source for an OLAP database.
