In February 2006, the Object Management Group (OMG) announced that they had been granted the right to develop new specifications based on the ODMG 3.0 specification and the formation of the Object Database Technology Working Group (ODBT WG). The ODBT WG plans to create a set of standards that incorporates advances in object database technology (e.g., replication), data management (e.g., spatial indexing), and data formats (e.g., XML) and to include new features into these standards that support domains where object databases are being adopted (e.g., real-time systems).

Peter Naur, Professor Emeritus, University of Copenhagen, named 2005 A.M. Turing Award "For fundamental contributions to programming language design and the definition of Algol 60, to compiler design, and to the art and practice of computer programming."
