Archbishop Mark Coleridge, the Chairman of the Bishops Commission for Liturgy, told the meeting that it is now anticipated that the new Missal will be published in early 2011.
In preparation for the publication of the new Missal an international catechetical resource is being developed. The multi‐media resource, to be used by English speaking nations around the world, is being prepared by Frayneworks, a work of the Sisters of Mercy in Melbourne.
Its preparation is under the direction of Fr Peter Williams, the Director of the National Liturgical Office.
Entitled “Become One Body, One Spirit in Christ”, it will be completed by the end of 2009 and will be launched in London this month by Bishop Arthur Roche, Bishop of Leeds and Chairman of the Leeds Group (of English‐speaking Bishops’ Conferences).
It will be available for distribution throughout the English‐speaking Catholic world by the end of February 2010. The resource will be launched in Australia at the national representatives in liturgy gathering to be held in Perth in early February 2010.

A Date For The New Missal...?
A friend alerted me to the following, which he described as "a scooplet." I'm not entirely sure about that, but here is the information anyway...
I'm not convinced that we need any catechetical resource other than the admission that the previous ICEL translation was seriously deficient, and that the new translation is much better.
It's not rocket science...
