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.

Circe adopters should be using Scala https://github.com/circe/circe
what popular companies uses Scala?

If you look at Circe's github repo you will see a very large list of very recognizable companies, that should give you some idea. Circe isn't the ONLY Json parsing library, but it is probably the most popular, so - should give you a rough idea of the types and variety of companies using Scala.
Every time I sit down to use an HTTP client and JSON parser, I get really frustrated

Has the worst error messages I've ever seen for a parser. "Attempt to decode value on failed cursor" is not helpful when all you have is missing fields. Has been an issue for 5 years.
It's unsafe to depend on Typelevel Libraries

Circe tries to drop Scala 2.12 support in retaliation for not enough users paying them.

Otherwise I tend to just use ZIO-JSON or Circe both of which have been updated for Scala 3.
Performance of 12 JSON parsers for Scala

I've updated results of benchmarks of 12 JSON parsers for Scala: - AVSystem's scala-commons - Borer - Circe - DSL-JSON - Jackson - jsoniter-scala - Play-JSON, - play-json-jsoniter - Spray-JSON - uPickle - weePickle - zio-json
Why is xml the only first class markup?

Here it is. It's called circe-litetal.
Ruby 3 Released

I doubt it will be called ergonomic. Scala also has Json objects (e.g. circe), but then you will need to define your whole hierarchy of classes based on some abstract BaseObject(since you can't change existing Object) and cram all methods into it (e.g. https://github.com/circe/circe/blob/c7e6ef1f21d28635b03df36c93decf010221684b/modules/core/shared/src/main/scala/io/circe/Json.scala#L75), some overridden methods in subclasses will raise an exception (or return None: https://github.com/circe/circe/blob/c7e6ef1f21d28635b03df36c93decf010221684b/modules/core/shared/src/main/scala/io/circe/Json.scala#L290). Yeah, possible, but that's exactly what Ruby is trying to avoid.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning play-json yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
