[pytest-dev] yield_fixture still experimental?

Hi everyone,

The documentation for yield_fixture says:

> “yielding” fixture values is an experimental feature and its exact
declaration may change later
> but earliest in a 2.5 release. You can thus safely use this feature in
the 2.4 series but may
> need to adapt later. Test functions themselves will not need to change
(as a general
> feature, they are ignorant of how fixtures are setup).

Is yield_fixture still experimental? Are there any plans to change it for
2.7, or later?

I ask because a colleague of mind was somewhat cautious about using them
because of their "experimental" status.
