#14362 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add a description to the boot state menu entry

It looks like most boot menu options have tips on the bottom of the screen, but the boot state menu entry doesn't have one and I didn't know I was supposed to press ENTER to choose a previous state, so I looked for other information on screen that could help.

The "Current: Latest version" option makes you assume that's what you will boot if you press ENTER, which is why I didn't try it. In my case I ended up in KDL directly on the boot splash screen, so I avoided the option.

How about this tip on the bottom of the screen? "Press ENTER to choose a different boot state"

Didn't trac use to auto-close tickets with a"Fixes #12345" in the commit message?
