[COMMITTED] Update NEWS with ISO 14651 update information.


Update NEWS with ISO 14651 update information.
~~~
* The localization data for ISO 14651 is updated to match the 2016
  Edition 4 release of the standard, this matches data provided by
  Unicode 9.0.0.  This update introduces significant improvements to the
  collation of Unicode characters.  This release deviates slightly from
  the standard in that the collation element ordering for lowercase and
  uppercase LATIN script characters is adjusted to ensure that regular
  expressions with ranges like [a-z] and [A-Z] don't interleave e.g. A
  is not matched by [a-z].  With the update many locales have been
  updated to take advantage of the new collation information.  The new
  collation information has increased the size of the compiled locale
  archive or binary locales.
