It's been there for a while.

> This library provides a very easy-to-use async/await library for D. It consists of only three functions: async, await, and startScheduler. The library is build on top of D's fibers and allows for easier cooperative multitasking.

import std.stdio;

int calculateTheAnswer() {
	import core.thread : Thread;
	Thread.sleep(5.seconds);
	return 42;
}

void doTask() {
	writeln("Calculating the answer to life, the universe, and everything...");
	int answer = await(calculateTheAnswer());
	writeln("The answer is: ", answer);
}

void main() {
	startScheduler({
		doTask();
	});
}

How does this differ from std.concurrency.Generator?

I don't think it's that simple. To be efficient you need to use no-blocking IO and have an event loop as well.
