With no document open go to menu item Edit->Colors. A window 
pops up. Then select a particular palette. I like the CMYK palette 
"Scribus Open Office" but your taste may differ.  You can also 
create your own version of rich black, such as is required by 
printer LSI. On the same popup window select New.

BTW I am now using bleeding edge version1.5.0 but see no 
problems with it, only omissions among the output choices, such 
as PDF X/A and PDF X/1-a:2001. They will come in time I expect.
