Once again, the NEWS entry doesn't mention pinentry-emacs at all.  So
I wonder what is it that I'm missing here.

AFAIU, the NEWS entry just says that pinentry.el and the related
features are not needed with GnuPG >= 2.1, and are not very useful
with GnuPG < 2.1.  That's why we removed it: its only effect was to
confuse users.
