As was told here before (and at http://stat.ethz.ch/CRAN/sources.html )
it's in the daily snapshot, i.e. part of the full source tree,
o either *in* the daily snapshot which means inside the
R-devel.tar* file you get from ftp://ftp.stat.math.ethz.ch/Software/R/
o or you use rsync which also gives you the whole source tree
of R-devel with NEWS at the top.

I have just now added links to the (three) unreleased NEWS files at
or for R-devel directly at
I hope this helps.
However BEWARE: `Unrelased' means that these NEWS files will not
only be updated before release, but there is no
strict warranty that a release really will
contain the features mentioned.
