Before you go ahead and flash LineageOS 17.1 on your device, be sure to read the installation instructions and other linked documentation, including the guides and special boot modes, on the respective Wiki pages. Also, make sure you take a backup of your data before you start the installation, or you may lose it during the process.

Along with the additions to the LineageOS 17.1 roster mentioned above, the LineageOS team has also added LineageOS 16.0 (based on Android 9 Pie) support for the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL. The maintainer decided to release LineageOS 16 support for the Pixel 2 series so that users have a chance to experience the Android 9 Pie version of the ROM on their devices before they move on to the Android 10 build.
