    Question "yet" used in affirmative statements

    Hi

    I've come across "yet" in a present perfect affirmative statement and since "yet" is almost always used in negatives and questions I'm wondering what it could mean.

    Here's the usage from the World English Series

    "This represents the best opportunity we've had yet to find out who the Lapita actually were, where they came from, and who their closest descendants are today"

    your help is greatly appreciated.
