bug#18086: 24.4.50; NEWS entry for `kill-region'

From: Drew Adams
Subject: bug#18086: 24.4.50; NEWS entry for `kill-region'
Date: Wed, 23 Jul 2014 08:44:34 -0700 (PDT)

>From the beginning, and forever prior to Emacs 24.4, `kill-region' had
this signature: (kill-region BEG END).  That includes Emacs 24.3.

Starting with Emacs 24.4, this is the signature:
(kill-region BEG END &optional REGION)

1. This change should be called out in NEWS.

2. Instead, there is this entry in NEWS for Emacs 24.4, under
"Incompatible Lisp changes in Emacs 24.4":

** `kill-region' has lost its `yank-handler' optional argument.

This is incomprehensible.  It never had a `yank-handler' optional
