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 athttp://stat.ethz.ch/R-alpha/
or for R-devel directly athttp://stat.ethz.ch/R-alpha/R-devel/NEWS
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.

Look on developer.r-project.org to see the significance,
but as the .1 is the patchlevel, it will be an *minor*
1.5.0 is not finished yet (it does not go into feature
freeze until April 8). The current list of new features
is in the NEWS file in the R-devel snapshots available
