Currently, when the presenter draws on the whiteboard, the object is fixed.  For example,
they can't move/resize the square after it is drawn, nor can they edit a text field.

Add editing of objects to the whiteboard.

Also add selecting of objects for deletion (as opposed to delete clearing all objects).

When will "moving/resizing" feature to be included in BBB?

When developing whiteboard features further, please benchmark e.g. against
which is praised by some math tutors. E.g. moving objects on whiteboard, writing text
can start with single mouse click vs. BBB's drawing an area for writing first, possibility
to choose different empty "whiteboard", etc.

Hi Mika,

Thanks for the comments.  You can expect some more enhancements to the whiteboard in
future iterations of BigBlueButton (beyond 0.9.0).

Is there any tentative time by when this functionality will be available?

No plans yet -- we're focused on finishing 0.9.0 at the moment.  Once we're done, we'll
look at the list of features for the next release and prioritize them.  For details
