Bug Description

Brighened -> Brightened

kicad$ git describe --tags
kicad$ git grep -i brighened
eeschema/eeschema.cpp: CLR( "Color4DBrighenedEx", LAYER_BRIGHTENED, COLOR4D( PUREMAGENTA ) )

This string is written to and read from the file in $KICAD_CONFIG_HOME/eeschema. The issue is minor, but could cause confusion when editing colors manually in config file. Or possibly when sharing palettes with friends.

Since fixing this changes a file format, I would assume it has to wait until after KiCad 5.0 has been released.

Note that the 6.0 tree also has a way to specify a legacy key for configs so that it will read the legacy key if the current key isn't found.
