At the opening of the first legal challenge to the process of Brexit on Tuesday, government lawyers confirmed that May will not push the button on article 50 of the Lisbon treaty, which initiates the UK’s departure, before the end of this year.

It's interesting that she's telling this to the Germans rather than to some EU representative.

I wonder how much underhand dealing goes on at these meetings?

Not long ago the Germans were still saying, article 50 must be invoked sooner rather than later. Now it seems they are accepting it won't be this year. I guess some serious behind the scenes dealing has already been going on.
