How does one access ESRI File GeoDatabases (*.gdb)?

Greetings, everyone. I am picking up Julia as a second programming language, so bear with me. The JuliaGeo group is making great strides to carve a path for geospatial analytics using Julia. I am excited to see what comes next from the team. That said, I often work with ESRI file geodatabase as part of the field that I work in. In Python, I know that (provided one has the FGDB.dll) developers can access these files using GDAL. ArchGDAL is still relatively new, but is there a plan to support file geodatabases to access vector or raster data? Are there any alternative packages that allow Julia users to access this data?
