Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning IrrlichtBAW yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
What would be most beneficial to learn to get back up to speed?

Perhaps not quite what you're looking for, but I've had a reasonably good experience with bgfx. It's basically 1 level of abstraction above specific graphics APIs (GL, DirectX, etc). It is not a full game engine, just a rendering API.
BGFX DirectX11 "Failed to create vertex shader" over Windows 10x64, but works fine under Win7x86 with d3d9.

Im using this lib for getting renderer API, on pretty old PC with win7x86 works pretty fine, but when Im trying to start it on Windows 10x64 with DirectX11(software) on DirectX10(hardware) it says the next thing:2 projects | reddit.com/r/GraphicsProgramming | 22 Nov 2021

If we're going to list graphics libraries then bgfx and irrlicht are probably worth a mention as well.

Porting a game to android
2 projects | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 1 Aug 2021
This new Android game kit is a step in the right direction because now you have less JNI/NDK stuff to deal with, BUT it locks you into the Google ecosystem even more. I would not recommend. Most PC game ported to mobile/other platform use SDL2 to manage the audio/input/file access cross platform. And then use something like bgfx or angle for the rendering back end.
