We never had full history in one page, so it would be rather arbitrary
to start keeping it now.
We kept all unique news entries in the page, with the exception of
releases. We consistently only kept the latest release news item.
Changing that now looks quite inconsistent IMHO. And if you carefully
consider, if we wouldn't have done it like so in the past, there'd be
49 dmenu entries and 62 dwm entries already. It would look hideous.

Best regards,
