Yet can be an adverb meaning:

1 - up till now/up till this time: has he come yet? I haven't seen him yet; I have nothing to say as yet.

2 - in spite of everything: he's not among the leaders but he could win yet.

3 - even: yet more people; he ate yet another cake.

It can also be a conjunction meaning still/but: she hasn't got many friends, yet everyone likes her.

Thanks, Conchita. Just one more doubt - is there any rules for using commas with yet? I mean, when to use commas with yet and when not?

For example:

1. He was brave, yet defeated.
2. The software issue is yet to be finalized.
3. I don't know him, yet I am sure he is honest.

Do you think the above sentences require any corrections?

Best Wishes,

You can use a comma to separate two clauses that are joined by 'yet', which is then treated as coordinating conjunction.

Your sentences are correct, yet the comma can also be omitted between two short clauses.
