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.
Firefox now supports AV1 VA-API playback

No. There are hardware encoders. For software encoding while AV1's reference encoder is very slow; both rav1e and SVT-AV1 are usable on a higher end PC built in the last few years.
I'm giving out microgrants to open source projects for the third year in a row! Brag about your projects here so I can see them, big or small!

I'm going to promote rav1e, an AV1 encoder written in Rust+ASM. Unlike the reference encoder, rav1e seeks to focus on psychovisual quality rather than pure metrics, and so to many people it is a promising alternative. However, it has some catching up to do in the speed department.
What are the differences between full-build and full-build-shared?

Just as a side note, there may be exceptions at times. For example, at one point the rav1e encoder couldn't be built statically into FFmpeg due to a (compiler?) bug. Though I have no idea if this actually affected any providers of FFmpeg builds at the time, rare problems like this can happen.

AOM AV1 encoder/decoder in Debian needs update to enable AVIF saving
3 projects | reddit.com/r/debian | 19 Oct 2021
This issue could additionally be solved by packaging rav1e, which libavif can use for encoding. Getting it included in Debian is a goal of the project: https://github.com/xiph/rav1e/issues/886
[rav1e git] Scene detection improvement(better and more advanced scene detection all around at all speeds)
for resolution higher than 360p even 720x720 it get slower like on full hd it reached 0.88 fps on i3 330m and it's slow. speed 10 is the one i recommend, at constant quality 100, with notenoughav1encodes, use 2 workers (at least) and this build https://github.com/xiph/rav1e/releases/tag/p20210831
For the same reason rav1e devs have compared aomenc's fastest preset against rav1e's slowest. To point out that rav1e massively underperforms.
RustCrypto Release Announcements: `aead` v0.4, `cipher` v0.3, `crypto` v0.2, `elliptic-curve` v0.9, `ecdsa` v0.11

For ECIES that'd probably be something like HPKE. HPKE isn't specific to ECC though, and is defined in terms of a KEM, so the first step there would probably be defining KEM traits which would allow you to plug in ECDH or potentially a post-quantum algorithm or RSA.
The last and next year of image-rs
9 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 25 Feb 2021
No need for eternal stability. It would be indeed nice to get the API right the first time, but in practice it's borderline impossible to do. It's fine for trait crates to introduce breaking changes from time to time, especially for pre-1.0 ones. For prior art you can take a look at rand_core or RustCrypto trait crates.
What’s everyone working on this week (8/2021)?

I finally dusted off my barely-working git hosting solution and added a basic user account system. It took me some time to understand how exactly I was supposed to use password-hash in combination with my hashing function of choice, as well as with the DB. Using sqlx together with Rocket turned out to be somewhat easy once I figured out that I should disregard the built-in database support, since it's seemingly incompatible with sqlx.
Go vs Rust for crypto implementations
3 projects | reddit.com/r/crypto | 17 Jan 2021
The main difference between those two languages, I think you should look at, is power of type system. A good type system allows to encode various invariants checked at compile time, help with interoperability, and even improve performance a bit (e.g. by eliminating runtime-checks). In this regard Rust is far, far ahead of Go in my opinion and continues to improve in this regard (e.g. soon we will have const generics). For example, in RustCrypto we have trait crates which contain "interfaces" of several algorithm types. Almost all algorithm implementations in this org (and some third-party implementations) are implemented in terms of those traits, which means you can easily swap algorithms with each other and combine them like Lego blocks, without diving deep into source code. This property is especially important if you want to support less common algorithms (e.g. regional standards or newly developed algorithms).
