Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
There is no mention of changes to mod_rewrite in the Upgrading to 2.0 from 1.3 [httpd.apache.org] Apache documentation.
What is your rule supposed to do (in detail)?
What, if any, error information appears in your error log?
Are you sure that mod_rewrite is loaded and enabled?
mod_rewrite module is loaded and I tried to get log with:
but that also doesn't work...
BTW .htaccess is located in /absolute/path/bosut/public_html/news/

Strange... It still looks OK.
I was actually suggesting you look at your "regular" error log - the one where you would usually find 400, 403, and 404 errors logged. Often you'll find mod_rewrite syntax errors that cause 500-Server Errors listed in there.
About all I can suggest is to try something like this:
RewriteRule ^([^/]*) /news/index.php?date=$1 [L]
