from the webpage (

UNO (Universal Network Objects) is the interface-based component model
of UNO offers interoperability between different
programming languages, different object models, different machine
architectures and different processes; either in a local network or even
via the internet. UNO components can be implemented in and accessed from
any programming language for which a UNO language binding exists.

Currently there are complete UNO language bindings for:

* C
* C++ (compiler dependent, please see
for a list of supported platforms)
* Java
* Python

Built in support for database. You doesn't need external module.
The SDBC Driver allows to use the database from without
any wrapper layer such as odbc or jdbc.

I don't know anything about new features. But I don't have knowedge
about component modells. But from Frank Schönheit:
Additionally, SDBC (more precise: its extensions SDBCX and SDB) provide
additional features which are not present in JDBC, or were not present
at the time SDBC was invented.
