Add OpenCore version to Config.plist

  • Add the OpenCore version inside Config.plist as a comment
  • This will facilitate keeping track of different versions of EFIs, especially since the OpenCore version cannot be seen inside a backed up EFI folder
  • It should also help during upgrades when looking for differences between the versions
  • Disadvantage is that the version number cannot be automatically updated
