Log Message:
Update koffice to version 1.4.0a

The principal improvements over KOffice 1.3 are:

* Krita: Krita is an image editor and paint application with a wide
  range of applications, from photo editing to the creation of original
  artwork. Sporting a clear and uncluttered interface (for a paint
  app...) it makes the features it delivers accessible and intuitive to
  This is the first public release of Krita and while it provides a
  coherent set of features, it is only the first stepping stone towards
  a flexible paint application for artists and image editors.
* Kexi. KOffice 1.4 is the first official release to include Kexi. Kexi
  is an integrated environment for creating and managing databases. It
  can be used for creating database schemas; inserting data; performing
  queries, and processing data. Forms can be created to provide a custom
  interface to your data. All database objects - tables, queries and
  forms - are stored in the database, making it easy to share databases.
  Kexi is considered as a long awaited Open Source competitor for
  MS Access, Filemaker and Oracle Forms. Its development is motivated by
  the lack of Rapid Application Development (RAD) tools for database
  systems that are sufficiently powerful, inexpensive, open standards
  driven and portable across many OSes and hardware platforms.
* OASIS OpenDocument support: Most KOffice applications now support the
  OASIS OpenDocument file format. KOffice developer David Faure is part
  of the OASIS technical committee and was able to participate in the
  discussions that led to the creation of this standard file format.
* KWord (Word Processor):
  o rewritten spell-checking support which is much faster and solves
    many problems (e.g. KOffice-1.3's right-click-menu sometimes
    hanging); with aspell, spell-checking is available in more than
    70 languages.
  o word completion with tooltip;
  o a new WordPerfect import filter, based on an external library, libwpd;
* KPresenter (Presentation Tool):
  o a master page concept;
  o reworked dialogs (property editor, object and page effects); and
  o customizable slide order and selection for slide show.
* KSpread (Spreadsheet):
  o Support for right-to-left spreadsheets;
  o much improved value parsing and formatting;
  o a calendar plug-in;
  o additional options for cell validity, 5 new functions, and
  o a new Microsoft Excel import filter.
* KChart (Graph and chart drawing tool):
  o New, much improved, data editor;
  o linear or logarithmic scale;
  o printing support;
  o support for data as rows or columns; and
  o export to PNG and SVG formats.
* Kivio (Flow-charting application):
  o New stencils: Nassi Schneiderman;
  o a docker for adding stencils to the document;
  o a tool for adding connector targets to stencils; and
  o a poly-line connector.
