Pika 0.12 Status

I wanted to let everyone know that Pika 0.12 is being worked on and will be released as soon as possible. The big thing that 0.12 adds is documentation. The documentation can be specified with an annotation and grabbed at runtime. Should make it easier for people to try Pika out.

A Quick Look at Generators

Generators are objects that store the stack and state of a function call in response to a yield statement. They can then be called to restore the previous state of that function call. The function will resume execution just after the last yield statement. A generator will exit when a return statement is encountered. You can do that explicitly or just let the function exit normally.
