Welcome aboard, Bob. The major difference, of course, is that OpenDCL is free and open source. Every OpenDCL user is part of the development and testing team. I can't speak to functional differences as I'm not familiar with the revived ObjectDCL, but I believe they have an evaluation version that you can download.

Sorry I post to an old thread, I have only question, why doesn´t use DCL which is incorporated in Autocad a more attraktiv editor to create a template form.
I like more OpenDCL some beginners.

Maybe stupid or superfluous if I was thinking than I begin with a DCLlanguage I compared DCL, OpenDCL and ObjectDCL. The first two are for free. ObjectDCL you have to pay a minimi budget.

In DCL looks like a template form as this example:

// Chain.dcl Draw Chains via Dialog
Chain : dialog {
  label = "Chain Options";
  : row {
    : column {
      spacer_1;
      : image_button {
         key = "Chn_ICON";
         height = 8;
//       width = 20;
         aspect_ratio = 1.50;
      }
    }
//    spacer_1;
    : column {
        : edit_box {
          label = "Chain Size";
          mnemonic = "S";
          key = "Chn_sz" ;
          edit_width = 8;
        }
      : boxed_column {
        label = "Chain Type";
        : column {
          : row {
            : radio_button {
              label = "Heavy";
              mnemonic = "H";
              key = "Chn_H";
            }
            : radio_button {
              label = "Medium";
              mnemonic = "M";
              key = "Chn_M";
            }
          }

But it´s little bit complicate to understand without any editor.
So I prefer OpenDCL, it´s more easier to use or I missed something?
