Removed/Retired Features

Support for the ancient .hwp file format  was retired. This was a rarely used format created with versions of the program named "Hangul Word Processor" prior to 1997; therefore impact on users is expected to be minimal. The few users who have files in the .hwp format should convert them to ODF using Apache OpenOffice 4.1.1 before upgrading.
