Thank you for the effort.

A business I am a customer of runs 1.x on all their web servers and I 
have been trying to get them to update to 2.x for years.

When they use TLS it is ben-ssl with export ciphers and I *finally* got 
them to turn off all the dangerous ciphers and only allow tls 1.0 but 
the excuse they keep giving me is "our hosting company says the version 
we have is secure"

I don't understand how a version that hasn't received upstream updates 
for years can be considered "secure" - lazy hosting company.

I would love to see better 2.4.x adoption, especially now that it 
supports HTTP/2.
