[Java,wwwdocs] java/news.html -- remove broken link

Gerald Pfeifer
I could not find a replacement link, and in any case, isn't the plan
still to remove the Java frontend before the GCC 7 release?

Applied.

FWIW I found the article inside a PDF at:
  https://www.redhat.com/en/files/resources/rh-magazine-issue-12.pdf
(pages 20-22)

From lurking the mailing lists, it looked like that's what people were
saying, but I never saw any sort of official deprecation notice in the
caveats section of
https://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-6/changes.html
or any of the other places I might expect to find deprecation
notices... (such as other places around the website, or in the source
code itself...)
