Here's another screen capture showing the current status of the FIDE handbook. The organization of the material has been much improved.

Still missing is any trace of the Women’s Candidates tournament. FIDE partially compensated for this requirement by making a key announcement:-
- 2021-05-05: Qualification for FIDE Women’s Candidates Tournament 2022 announced (fide.com) 'The FIDE Council has approved the qualifying path to the Women’s Candidates Tournament 2022. The eight spots in the Women’s Candidates Tournament 2022 will be allocated based on the following criteria [...]'
After the fourth and last leg of the Women's Grand Prix currently underway in Gibraltar, the two other qualifying events are scheduled for later this year:-
- Women's World Cup 2021; Sochi, Russia; 10 Jul 2021; 03 Aug 2021
- Women’s Grand Swiss 2021; Isle of Man; 25 Oct 2021; 08 Nov 2021
Another piece of the overall picture was announced last week:-
- 2021-05-19: Women's World Cup : List of qualified players (fide.com)
The Women’s Candidates tournament and the title match are currently not scheduled. Which will come first -- the documentation, i.e. the rules, for the events -or- the formal announcement of the events? Based on recent performance, I'm betting on the announcement.
