A few places in the UI still refer to "SSL" instead of "SSL/TLS"

SSL is of course the obsolete name for TLS.

Most UI refers to both, ex: System > Advanced > Notifications

But I found at least one place that says only "SSL":

System > Advanced > Admin Access > webConfigurator

refers to "SSL Certificate". Would be nice to rename to "SSL/TLS Certificate"

There are a few others in various places around the repo.

There are even more in packages but those don't need to be handled during a release like the base code does.

The LDAP-related options will have to wait for 2.5.0 since it requires a configuration change. The others are cosmetic only and can be applied to 2.4.5.

Looks good to me. All the places I noted use SSL/TLS now on 2.5.0 and where possible on 2.4.5.
