The source for the project is being hosted on Google Code. There's also a mailing list if you're interested in getting more information. It's really, really cool to see something like this from the OpenLaszlo community, which seems to be thriving. And the project seems to be moving along quickly with support for a lot of features that the big players have:

It has a lot of features you usually know from Conferencing Desktop Clients. You can import various File Formats and share the with your Conference Members or drag n drop them to the whiteboard. Whiteboard Items can be dragNDroped, some may editable (TextBoxes) or resizable, you can store and reloaded/edit/restore the hole *painting* the next time you have a meeting. You can go into 4×4 meetings (4 users everybody see’s/speak’s to everybody) or a 1xn meeting (one big screen and unlimited users watching). For the whiteboard there is a moderating system to change the *virtual pencil* between all participant of a meeting.

And it's all open source, so as he says, you can download and add to it at will. Cool stuff Sebastian.
