Release notes (Fastboard)

This page provides the release notes for the Fastboard.

The Fastboard SDK is the latest generation of the Interactive Whiteboard SDK launched by Agora to help developers quickly build whiteboard applications. It simplifies the APIs of the Interactive Whiteboard SDK and implements the core functionality with a default user interface (UI). In addition, the Fastboard SDK integrates window-manager and extensions from netless-app to allow developers to easily extend the functionality of their whiteboard applications. With the Fastboard SDK, you do not need to learn the complex concepts of the interactive whiteboard; you can join a whiteboard room with a few lines of code and instantly use the rich editing tools to start real-time interactive collaboration.
