The CyanogenMod Inc. development team has come with a surprise today with its new project called the CyanogenMod 14.1. Amid several unofficial CM 14.1 ROM builds, the Cyanogen team has now launched the official stable CM 14.1 ROM for various Android devices. The CM 14.1 ROM is based on the latest Android 7.1 Nougat firmware. Moreover, the first Android phones to receive the official builds are the two Nexus 6P & 5X, OnePlus 3, Moto G variants and some popular devices from Samsung, Asus, LG, Xiaomi, etc.
Now, being a very first build from CM, you may still find some bugs or instability issues. Moreover, some features usually expected in the CyanogenMods ROMS like CM theme engine, advanced configuration options, etc. can be missing right now. However, as it is official, you will get daily or weekly updates for your device with more features each time. Soon you will find CM 14.1 compatible themes and much more on the Play Store. The CyanogenMod 14.1 is indeed based on the latest AOSP security update from November and October 2016. As the ROM comes with latest Android 7.1 Nougat firmware, you can install or port most of the Google Pixel apps and features onto your Android device.
