I had thought I would upgrade my OnePlus One from CyanogenMod 12.1 (Lollipop) to CyanogenMod 14 (Nougat) over the holidays.
Today I went to take a look at the CyanogenMod download and wiki pages for OnePlus One and was struck with something I didn’t expect but that according to what I now read has been largely expected: Cyanogen Inc is shutting down CyanogenMod builds and wiki.
- Cyanogen Inc’s announcement
- AndroidPolice: Cyanogen Inc shutting down CyanogenMod nightly builds and other services, CM will live on as Lineage
- AndroidPolice: Steve Kondik blames Kirt McMaster for Cyanogen Inc’s failure, CyanogenMod to reorganize and regroup

In an announcement dated Dec 24, 2016 LineageOS.org states:
So, yes, this is us. LineageOS will be a continuation of what CyanogenMod was. To quote Andy Rubin, this is the definition of open. A company pulling their support out of an open source project does not mean it has to die. Check back for more information on Tuesday.
