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.

In this case you have some binary data represented as a byte array and you want to treat it as an array of longs (or an array of any of the primitives.) SIMD here is over complicating it, as all you really need is to know what offset to use and if you need to re-interpret the bits. That's what the MethodHandles.byteArrayViewVarHandle is doing. In order to do this you need to use the Unsafe class. The code for all of this is generated from this template if you're interested.2 projects | reddit.com/r/java | 26 Jan 2023
It's just using a simple pre-processor called SPP. The source code for it is here.

OpenJDK Proposes Project Galahad to Merge GraalVM Native Compilation

I think the entirety of Hotspot is written in C++ ? The standard library in the JDK is mostly written in Java, but the VM itself with the GC and JIT code is in C++, which makes sense as the GC would have to collect itself.
If you do not count the standard library as part of the JVM (but part of the JDK), then the JVM is written mostly in C++.6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 21 Dec 2022
To add to your question, assuming the tooling at github is ok, it has ~20% as c/c++ for https://github.com/openjdk/jdk. I would think most of that would be concentrated in the hotspot code, but I don't know. Would be delighted to know what the original post was referring to.
In Java, how do static arrays of Strings work? Strings are arrays of characters, so when the array of Strings is initialized with a given size, how does Java know how much memory to allocate?

How does jvm deal with syscalls

It has code that gets compiled dependent on what OS and CPU it's targeting. See https://github.com/openjdk/jdk/tree/master/src/java.base for example. There are different directories for the different supported OSes.
JDK 20 will introduce float16 conversion methods
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Oct 2022
Exactly so, there are a bunch of Java interfaces to native ML libraries that have some messy bit hacking to convert between fp16 and Java floats. This API along with the intrinsification (https://github.com/openjdk/jdk/pull/10500) will mean I can throw away that code and replace it with something that performs correctly and is much faster.
