November 2012 Update: This issue was originally filed in 2009 to talk about porting Term Node Count to Drupal 7. After much discussion, no one took the lead, and we are now looking at a Drupal 8 release in less than a year. It would make more sense to develop for Drupal 8, however, a few people are wanting this module to handle counting large numbers of term nodes for current Drupal 7 sites. Although Views can inherently handle counting of a few thousand nodes, the process is too slow in Views for numbers higher than that. If anyone is interested in doing this, perhaps a new issue should be opened, since this one has so many unrelated support questions and old references.
Someone just pointed me here from . Just a note that we completely removed taxonomy_term_count_nodes() from Drupal 7, which leaves modules relying on that function a choice between or this module. In the interests of D7CX I'm opening this to start discussions about a D7 port.
