Bug Description

python-poppler does not release the GIL when doing long running operations like rendering pages. All the page_render* functions (and I guess get_thumbnail for example, too) should release the GIL with Py_BEGIN_ALLOW_THREADS and Py_END_ALLOW_THREADS.

I think I had some issues if I did not prevent multiple threads to render at the same time, so python-poppler should probably do some locking internally.

Looks good to me. I was mostly interested in page_render and page_render_for_printing, and I did not look closely trough the list now ...

status: Confirmed → Fix Committed
