This morning, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei tweeted out that the OnePlus will get its CyanogenMod 12S update, bringing the phone up to Lollipop.
@rajarshi_10 We released an L alpha a while ago, but a more stable build (OxygenOS & CM12S) will need to wait until March. Sorry for delay!

While some people have installed the nightly builds of CyanogenMod 12S on their devices, the reason that the OnePlus hasn’t been updated is due to “proprietary drivers, code, QA, [and] certifications.” Given the fact that OnePlus and Cyanogen haven’t been on the best of terms in their partnership, it’s very good news that this update is being released at all.
