[Info] New serial monitor - make monitor

In the latest release of the ESP-IDF there appears to be a new feature supplied in the "make" system called "make monitor". When we enter "make monitor" from our ESP-IDF directory, we are presented with a terminal emulator/monitor that logs the content of the ESP32 UART output. Previously we might have used a terminal emulator such as "screen" or "putty". The new "make monitor" appears to leverage the PySerial "miniterm" technology. I am also thinking that it is "hooked into" our configuration settings for serial made in "make menuconfig".

To terminate the monitor output, enter "CTRL+]".
