Log:
[NEWS] update news
+ update IMCC news
+ update PIRC news
+ beautify news layout for deprecations
+ note that some PIR language changes are mentioned in DEPRECATIONS section, as they've gone through a deprecation cycle and are now completely removed. Other syntax constructs are just changed, in which case they're listed under changes in compilers|IMCC. Yes I know this looks slightly random, but it's not :-)
