Add optional to remove completely "I2P News"

Description

After upgrading i2p from 0.9.35 to 0.9.36 , I2P news enabled itself by itself (i disabled it by default) so i think this is a violation to my preferences through upgrade.

Please give the freedom option to user to delete or remove completely I2P news link.

Thank You

(I made it "major" because this is violation on user preferences)

ok, you want the news section to be hidden from the summary bar if the option is set to disable?
What if the user clicks 'check for updates' manually? Should we re-display it then? For how long?
I don't believe the option is 'enabled by itself' as you said in the OP. It's just always displayed in the summary bar, even if the option is set to disable.

Please clarify what you'd like us to do if it's set to disable.

just add the possibility to delete the news url completely from the router , by this there is absolute surety no news fetching by mistake or when upgrading from version to version.

We can't do that for the reason stated in comment 4. The user could still click the Check For Updates button manually.

I will hide the 'News&Updates' section if updates are disabled and there's no recent news.
