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 slave-thread yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.

I think you are right about STM being roughly equivalent to snapshot isolation.
What STM offers is an easy way to invent "containers for snapshotted values" aka TVars. Using them carefully may result in better scaling: https://hackage.haskell.org/package/stm-containers

ctrie - Non-blocking concurrent hashmap for Haskell
stm-incremental - A very simple interface for incremental computation using STM in Haskell.
threads-supervisor - Simple, IO-based Haskell library for Erlang-inspired thread supervisors
capataz - OTP-like supervision trees in Haskell
conceit - Concurrently + Either
restricted-workers - Interactive-diagrams
stm-chunked-queues - Thread communication queues that group items/requests that occur close together in time
theatre - Minimalistic actor library for Haskell
named-lock - A named lock that is created on demand.
