Hi Mike,

I am afraid that we have not made any more progress on the smartboard 
side of things. Still of interest, but fallen off our radar as something 
that is urgent, and therefore hasn't been developed any further.

We have users that use the smartboards in collaboration, but the sharing 
is typically done through our SharedVNC tool sharing the desktop that 
has the smartboard controlling it... We would be interested in any work 
being done in this area...
