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.

How Much Faster Is Making a Tar Archive Without Gzip?
8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 10 Oct 2022
For anyone who wants to try this, zstd -T0 uses all your threads to compress, and https://github.com/facebook/zstd has a lot more description. Brotli, https://github.com/google/brotli, is another modern format with some good features for high compression levels and Content-Encoding support in web browsers. You might also want to play with the compression level (-1 to -11 or more, zstd's --fast=n).
One reason these modern compressors do better is not any particular mistake made defining DEFLATE in the 90s, but that new algos use a few MB of recently seen data as context instead of 32KB, and do other things impractical in the 90s but reasonable on modern hardware. The new algorithms also contain logs of smart ideas and have fine-tuned implementations, but that core difference seems important to note.

Alright, the minifying is done. What else? Did you know you can serve HTML, CSS and JS compressed? A lot of websites still use gzip, but there’s also Brotli. Brotli is specifically made for the web and compresses a lot better than gzip in most cases.
Configuring CloudFront to compress objects in AWS CDK
2 projects | dev.to | 1 Jun 2022
You can use CloudFront to automatically compress certain types of objects (files) and serve the compressed objects when viewers (web browsers or other clients) support them. Viewers indicate their support for compressed objects with the Accept-Encoding HTTP header. CloudFront can compress objects using the Gzip and Brotli compression formats. When the viewer supports both formats, CloudFront prefers Brotli.

dabbling @epilot-dev with ______
3 projects | dev.to | 21 Mar 2022
Year 2022 marked an amazing start for me with a new stint with epilot GmbH based out of Cologne, Germany. I joined the team to be working on their micro-frontend architecture, with my primary focus going to be on the performance aspects of the applications. Like the first recent addition we did after I started was to add brotli compression to each of our micro-frontend (MFEs) bundles.

CVE-2023-4863: Heap buffer overflow in WebP (Chrome)
18 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Sep 2023
So the real issue here is that the lack of tree validation before the tree construction, I believe. I'm surprised that this check was not yet implemented (I actually checked libwebp to make sure that I was missing one). Given this blind spot, an automated test based on the domain knowledge is likely useless to catch this bug.

A minimal viable Deflate decompressor is not exactly complex, although slower than mainline zlib.

ZLibrary not zlib for anyone worried about archiving algorithms. https://zlib.net/ and all the Linux repositories are safe (AFAIK).
Save File Corruption fix? PLEASE HELP
2 projects | /r/SatisfactoryGame | 30 Oct 2022
>The following is my educated guess at what to do next and I am a week-end warrior programmer at best. If someone with more experience comments, I would listen to them over me< If you have no programming experience, this may be a lost cause. It looks like the save file has a header area followed by a list of "zlib" compressed chunks. zlib.net may have a program that can open the save file and let you see the raw information inside it. Something after the header is garbled and it is preventing Save-Editors from decompressing that chunk OR from parsing what is inside of it. If you are lucky, the garbled bit will jump out at you and you can repair it.
Zlib Critical Vulnerability

The second commit definitely fixed a null pointer dereference, I am not sure if the CVE is referencing something else that was fixed by the first commit.
Gzip and Brotli Compression Level Estimator
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 10 Sep 2022
It is actually possible to estimate the compression level without actually compressing everything again, because different levels use different strategies which can be identified in some cases. zlib in particular has three strategies  and preflate  leverages this to store the deflate stream reconstruction data without much bits.
