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 lev yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.

Take a look at asio (https://think-async.com/Asio/)

As the commit (https://github.com/chriskohlhoff/asio/commit/36440a92eb83da34b7516af2632b119f83b66a35) explains, you can have io_uring to support the new I/O objects (i.e. files), but still using the epoll reactor for the other I/O objects. And that seem to be the only reason why the eventfd is there: you are still using epoll, but with io_uring through the eventfd to support things epoll doesn't support.
Retiring boost from my codebase
Standalone asio is the same library as boost::asio. It is the same developer that just makes a boost and non-boost version. The docs are at https://think-async.com/Asio/.
That's not even considering transitive dependencies. For instance, asio is at module level 17, so it's not even worth listing its dependencies, while asio has a perfectly fine standalone version at "level 0" completely compatible with the STL. So if you need some basic utility like base64 encoding, you are probably bringing almost all 164 boost libraries into your project.
