The Annual Statistical Report for the Texas Judiciary has just be published as a single book-like pdf document (a little later in the year than the previous edition, but with enhanced features and improved, user-friendly presentation). It is available for download free of charge from the Texas Judiciary's new website. 

The Annual Report is published by the Office of Court Administration (OCA) and is a veritable treasure-trove of data on the Texas judicial system at all levels, including caseload trends in the trial courts, broken down by case type and type of court; appellate case disposition patterns and opinion production the courts of appeals; and outcomes of appeals taken to the Texas Supreme Court and Court of Criminal Appeals and decided on the merits. The reporting period is the fiscal year, not the calendar year.
