    Thanks Nathan,

    Clearly explained. All the letters are daunting, and this video highlights what the most recent versions to select. Before when faced with making a choice, I was left guessing, which is not good.
    If we’re using TLS we should call it TLS. That’s the truth. It’s not confusing. I live in ‘Yorkshire’ where we call a spade a spade.
