With 049df29, abi::__forced_unwind is now caught to "safely" terminate the Python threads. This exception is an implementation detail only available in GCC.

As of this commit, bookwyrm is not portable and may only work on Linux.

Confirmed platforms and compilers:

  • Linux
    • GCC
    • Clang
  • FreeBSD
    • GCC
    • Clang
  • OpenBSD
