Whiteboard in IBM Sametime Meeting 9.0.1 removed

IBM implemented in Sametime Meeting 9.0.1 a whiteboard function as technical preview. Ben described in his articel how to enable this feature:

With the current cumulative Fix 901-ST-General-FP-SMOL-AK4G43  for the Meeting Server IBM has removed this function.

The response on my PMR 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.”

It’s a pity, it was a useful function.
