Whiteboard now removed from Sametime meetings

I created Whiteboard in Sametime 9.0.1 after finding that a whiteboard feature was added to meetings some time ago.

This morning Andreas Bader got back to the Skype group, IBM Sametime Community Chat after finding that the whiteboard feature had been removed after applying the latest Meeting server patch. Andreas had logged a PMR asking IBM where it had gone. IBM’s response was;

“I can confirm The Meetings Whiteboard feature release is being put on hold indefinitely.
The module “Core Whiteboard Services” has been removed permanently from the ST Meetings build, the whiteboard was an unsupported proof of concept feature.”

Cheers IBM. You finally gave us something people wanted for ages and then took it away.
