it's more an orbiter than a "robotic lunar mission" proper

I don't expect a Chinese device roving the Moon before 2014

Great news! It's really neat to be able to follow the space debuts of a country. Especially for the folks like me that were born after the heyday of the (first) space race :-\

Shenzhou-7 to get new airlock module
(translated and condensed, the last two paragraphs contain only some background information)
Feb 20, 2008

   Yeung Bao Wa, head of the China Aerospace Research Center said on Feb 20, 2008 that the research institute will develop a whole-new airlock module for SZ-7, with the purpose of meeting the mission objective: demonstrating EVA capability. Currently, normal spacesuit (wear inside cabin) and EVA spacesuit have passed ground testing and the test result is satisfactory. China Aerospace Research Center is the main satellite and spaceship R&D center in China, and Feb 20 is the 40th anniversary of the research institute.

He said that the main characteristic of the airlock module of SZ7, when compared with that in SZ5 and SZ6, is that it need to depressurize and repressurize in EVA. This is the first time a Shenzhou series spaceship feature this function, and it is the key technology to be demonstrated by the SZ7 mission. He also emphasis that the system is completely developed by China (comment: seems that he wants to respond to the claim that SZ7 is a modified Russian Soyuz), and he express confidence of SZ7 will meet its mission objectives. He also said that this technology is a key technology for the future development of spacelab.
