Have I missed something? New shows are only 12 min long. What's going on?

Which shows are you watching exactly? They might just be half length shows.

Ahh, looks like thats it, MAL has the length shown. CR doesn't really seem to have how long the episodes are anywhere. There's usually a few ever season that are half length, mal is useful for finding how long the episodes usually are.

It's not new, this has been going on for decades. You're just not used to it because it's only in the last few years that literally everything that airs each season is licensed and streamed outside of Japan, whether it's a good idea or not.

A little more information, if you're curious:

Anime that have short episodes are usually adaptations of 4-koma series, which are like the 3-4 panel comic strips found in newspapers (Garfield, Calvin & Hobbes, etc.), rather than a full manga or comic book. (Batman, Spiderman, and the like.)

The rigid, 4 panel limitation of the source material lends itself to a shorter episode structure. Exceptions to this would be when they string more than one "episode" together to fill a full time slot, such as in Arakawa Under the Bridge, if I remember right.

personally I enjoy the short episodes if you remove intro/credits you can watch a whole ep on work break. Plus sometimes you just need a quick fix and cant rely on Teekyu alone!
