Great news! Until the CyanogenMod team begin officially releasing CM12.1 builds, our beloved xda developer F4k has already begun compiling unofficial builds of CM12.1 which is based off the latest Android version Lollipop 5.1.

Those of you who eagerly wanted to try out the new Lollipop update now have the chance to do so by downloading and installing one of F4k's unofficial builds.

The update improves stability and performance and also includes some enhancements and a few new features such as:
  • Support for multiple SIM cards
  • Device Protection - your lost or stolen device will remain locked until you sign in with your Google account - even if someone resets your device to factory settings. It will only be available on phones and tablets that will come shipped with Android 5.1 in addition to Nexus 6 and Nexus 9
  • High Definition voice calling
  • Take control of your WiFi networks and paired Bluetooth devices directly from Quick Settings
And of course, all the customization features from CyanogenMod are also included in these builds.
