db4objects has announced the release of version 5.5 of the open source object database db4o. The focus of this release is on better performance and less memory consumption, emphasizing db4o's suitability for embedded use on low ressource systems. Some changes in detail: - A new BTree architecture for class indexes is used to reduce commit times dramatically, especially for larger sets of objects (100,000 to 10 million). - A new marshallers for strings and arrays improves insert and update performance by achieving a better clustering of slots. - A new diagnostics package provides more help for developers to develop fast applications. - All performance improvements also lead to a lower memory consumption. Along with this release db4objects also announces it's Community 2.0 initiative to make it easier for users to contribute and collaborate.

Hello Carl, Any chance to have JDO2 API for db4o in the near future? Thank you Alex Roytman
Any chance to have JDO2 API for db4o in the near future?The db4objects core committer team will not work on JDO support in the near future. It should be easy to write a JDO interface on top of db4o, so this could be a community project. We support community projects with forums, Wiki and download space.
Hi Will there be any future partnership with Spring so that you can create Spring DB4O template. I'm thinking in terms of opening the db and closing the db, seems like boiler plate code to me. Thanks Amin
