Looks like the folks over at AndroidPit have received quite the tip from a couple of trusted (completely separate) sources, as they say that Android 5.1 is coming as soon as February 2015! They even have a changelog.
Android 5.1 Changelog
Silent mode added after missing on Android 5.0

Currently they have no information regarding new functions or features, but we’ll be on the lookout for word of those.
Those that are still waiting on Android 5.0 may find it disheartening that they’ll have to wait all over again for an incremental update, but it is good to hear that Google is working hard to fix the baggage of issues that Lollipop brought with it.
