What's the best way to do most popular content in Drupal 7?

I've been using the Most Popular module because I haven't been able to find anything else, but that only has ~750 odd users spread between the D6 and D7 versions. Surely popular content is a fairly-common requirement? That leads me to believe there's a better maintained (and hopefully less buggy) module that does the exact same thing, just it has an obscure name and I can't find it via Google. If so, what is it?

(If you're going to crucify me for asking for an alternative module, note that I've contributed several issues and a documentation patch for Most Popular, and have volunteered to contribute code patches. However, there hasn't been a single commit on that module in ~6 months.)

Thank you!

    Almost all functionality of this module you can implement using Views + modules that calculate desired statistics. – Eugene Fidelin Oct 31 '12 at 16:04
  • @Eugene -- Any suggestions for the latter beyond Drupal's core statistics module? – aendrew Oct 31 '12 at 16:16
  • What exact statistics do you need? – Eugene Fidelin Oct 31 '12 at 16:18
  • @EugeneFidelin -- Mainly just pageviews; I'm trying to find the most-viewed content of the last, say, 6 months. – aendrew Oct 31 '12 at 16:27

    For this purpose use Radioactivity module as it is described here drupal.stackexchange.com/a/21075/7313 – Eugene Fidelin Oct 31 '12 at 16:40

  • Wow, that module is rad -- I like how they keep the metaphor running throughout (Half-life, cut-off, etc.). Thanks! – aendrew Nov 1 '12 at 17:46
