Cancel compile button?

I'm running openscad-nightly under linux, so OpenSCAD version 2021.09.22

In older versions there was a button to cancel a compile.
I've been missing this when I've been compiling models that have way too
many polygons...for various reasons.

Is this button still in the UI but I've gone blind, or is there a setting
in preferences that I don't see?

Thanks!

Hi Bryan,

In versoion 2104 I have a little red X in the lower right hand corner that I can
click to cancel.

I just built it from sources, and it's there, at the right end of the
progress bar.

Note that it is there only for F6 renders, not for F5 previews.  In
particular, if your model includes render() or a couple of other
operations that require CGAL, F5 can take a long time but has no
progress reporting or abort mechanism.
