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 is it going with desktop apps nowadays? What happened to wxHaskell?

If you want to make a simple desktop GUI, fltkhs — which binds to the FLTK library — is a good bet, as it's the easiest to install of all the Haskell desktop GUI libraries (even on Windows!). Unfortunately, the FLTK library doesn't create the prettiest GUIs in the world (e.g. see the GitHub page). If you care about such things, the author has also released the fltkhs-themes library, which provides a set of widgets with a much nicer style - see the GitHub page for a showcase.
