Switch to use news.rst instead of multiple release notes files

Description

Pypa's user guide: https://github.com/pypa/python-packaging-user-guide
This package and many others on Pypa are using news.rst. A NEWS.md file is very common among Github projects. Using news.rst format, we can add the changelog/ release notes to our docs site using Sphinx configuration.
